Bug Description

Impact
======
gnome-shell has released a new stable bugfix release.

https://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-shell/tree/NEWS/?h=gnome-3-26
https://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-shell/log/?h=gnome-3-26

We had already cherry-picked two fixes:
- fix_reset_initial_focus.patch
- git_layout-unset-when-headless.patch

We are also adding a fix for LP: #1712798

Test Case
=========
After installing this update, please restart your computer.

Verify that the default Ubuntu 17.10 desktop still works as well as it did before.

Also log in to the "vanilla" GNOME session to verify that it works (you may need to install gnome-session and restart first).

Optionally, you can go through some of the fixed bugs to verify the bug and the fix.

Regression Potential
====================
GNOME Shell is also used for the login screen so it is really important that updates don't break it.

This is a much smaller update than 3.26.1 (in terms of commits and lines of code changed) so it seems pretty unlikely to cause that kind of breakage.

GNOME 3.26 distros will be shipping this update.

There is a micro-release exception for GNOME:

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested and change the tag from verification-needed-artful to verification-done-artful.

SRU verification for Artful:
I have reproduced the problem with gnome-shell 3.26.1-0ubuntu5 in artful-updates and have verified that the version of gnome-shell 3.26.2-0ubuntu0.1 in -proposed fixes the issue. I also reproduced and verified most of the defects reported upstream and fixed with this release and did some exploratory testing without finding any new issue.

Marking as verification-done

tags: added: verification-done verification-done-artful
removed: verification-needed verification-needed-artful

please accept into artful-updates. i can't install the dbgsym files to get a good backtrace for a bug until the dbgsym matches the version i have installed (and i don't want to upgrade to proposed right now).
