Depend gnome-session-fallback

Bug Description

I think the gnome-shell package should depend on gnome-session-fallback. I had a headache of a time trying to get Gnome Shell working under a Oneiric Beta VM. The problem was that when I installed gnome-shell, gnome-session-fallback was not being installed. Due to the fact is was a VM, a very rudimentary graphics card was installed on the guest; a card that Gnome Shell doesn't support. Once it did the support test it would fail. At that point it tries to load /usr/share/gnome-session/sessions/gnome-fallback.session which doesn't exist and the entire session loading would fail.
