as reported by Josselin Mouette in #561206, gnome-shell needs DRI2 to
work right. Which means kms with the radeon driver (don't know for the
others). I fiddled a bit with the instructions given in
to get kms and DRI2, and now the overview is perfect (although I have
other problems, but which are not gnome-shell specific).
I think this needs documenting, and if possible a clear warning (at
least on the console, and if possible in the notification area) when one
launches gnome-shell and DRI2 is not activated.
