I'm not sure this is the best place to discuss this, should I open a bug
Still I agree with Andre: logging the user out is the best way for them
to lose their work. If gnome-shell crashes, which is AFAICT the most
common reason for this to appear, then I'd rather have the option to
restart the shell without extensions (or maybe start the fallback mode)
rather than losing my work.
Just my 2 cents.
