I suppose it's this bug even if I'm on Ubuntu 18.04 with kernel 4.15-RC3

This bug should have been kept as Expired ideally, especially since the original reporter has not yet replied to comment #6. And users of newer Ubuntu releases should log new bugs in future, please.

That all said, looking at the attached Stacktrace.txt and StacktraceSource.txt, I can tell this is actually a duplicate of the most common gnome-shell crash; bug 1505409
