Indeed, removing all extensions should be the first thing to check when dealing with gnome-shell bugs.

But calling them extension crashes isn't quite right. Extensions can effectively modify the code of gnome-shell at runtime and then gnome-shell crashes. This is unfortunate for reliability, but is probably the reason why we can have so many extensions at all. So I don't imagine gnome-shell will ever have a more reliable way of dealing with buggy extensions aside from us reminding people to uninstall them when problems occur.
