Bug Description

I made an update with apt-get where I also got new nvidia drivers. Then gnome freezed for a while and restarted itself so that all my running programs were killed and I got the login screen for a new session. After trying to login gnome restarts itself again which was reproducible. Then I forced a system restart and it worked again but then I got a whole bunch of errors which I am reporting now.
