Bug Description

As of cogl 1.8.0-1 in precise, gir1.2-coglpango-1.0 and libcogl-pango0 are split out from the main gir1.2-cogl and libcogl packages. So gnome-shell now needs a dependency on gir1.2-coglpango-1.0. Otherwise it fails to start with a message like

/usr/bin/gnome-shell: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

This happens for me on oneiric, after downgrading from ppa using ppa-purge. It is worse because there is no cogl-pango package in oneiric anymore; I have no way of repairing gnome-shell.
