GNOME-Shell crashes at logon after launching first application

Bug Description

Basically what happens is one of two things. Scenario 1: GNOME logs in fine, and sits at the desktop. The first application I open triggers a crash of Shell, and everything is hunky-dory after that. Scenario 2: GNOME logs in fine, when I open applications I notice that the "X" on my window close button is black instead of white. If I restart shell (by using alt+f2 and then r), everything is hunky-dory after that.
