I was running the rawhide version... Before I had gnome-software-3.11.1-1.fc21.x86_64,
and now I upgraded to 3.11.4-2.fc21.x86_64. Unfortunately 3.11.4-2.fc21.x86_64
crashes all the time for me. At least I think it crashed when I first started it,
because the window disappeared when I was looking for the screenshots. But now,
it doesn't actually *crash*, the window just disappears after a few seconds. In the logs:

Jan 24 10:56:14 bupkis gnome-session[1958]: Window manager warning: last_focus_time (861528554) is greater than comparison timestamp (861528547).  This most likely represents a buggy client sending inaccurate timestamps in messages such as _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW.  Trying to work around...

That is all.
