Package: gnome-shell
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,
*** Please consider answering these questions, where appropriate ***

   * What led up to the situation?
        upgraded test machine to sid for bug testing
   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
        Pressing super (win key) then typing rec to find the sound recorder
would cause the gnome shell to restart
        if i just use my mouse it works
   * What outcome did you expect instead?
        I expected the app menu to search for programs with "rec" in the name

   it may be worth noting on my desktop (non testing machine) it works
perfectly this is running debian wheezy

I don't know how to get debug info from gnome re the crash but if you can point
me in the right direction I will add extra info
