On Tue, learned that Fedora will roll back the cogl. Cogl/clutter
maintainer is looking at gnome-shell, but the changes shouldn't have
affected the module. Or in other words: difficult to investigate.

I haven't followed the discussion yesterday as my machine is unusable
and I already broke my backup machine. I should have IRC logs though.

Note: Didn't see any relevant fix/commit to gnome-shell/mutter.
