Bug Description

Yesterday I installed gnome-shell-extensions-alternative-status-menu, and today gnome-shell failed to run. Dropping into a virtual console and running it allowed me to see the following output:

$ DISPLAY=:0 gnome-shell
    JS ERROR: !!! WARNING: 'assignment to undeclared variable workViewInjections'
    JS ERROR: !!! WARNING: file '/<email address hidden>/extension.js' line 113 exception 0 number 156

Uninstalling the package gnome-shell-extensions-alternative-status-menu made gnome-shell start again. The only other extension I have installed is gnome-shell-extensions-native-window-placement.

gnome-shell version: 3.2.0-0ubuntu1
