Package: gnome-shell
Version: 2.31.2-1
Severity: important

After installing gnome-shell from experimental (2.31.2-3), it would not start.
It complained about a missing clutter symbol.  So I manually installed a newer
clutter from experimental (1.2.8-1), and tried again.  This time it complained
about a missing meta_somethign symbol.  So I went back and manually installed
the version of mutter from experimental (2.31.2-3).  After doing that, things

Note that installing gnome-shell did pull in gir1.0-mutter-2.31, but it didn't
pull in the newer mutter itself.  I suspect there's some missing dependencies
