If you are in the situation of being able to then I suggest you take TC2 
( or wait for the RC ) and do a fresh install using the fedora repos ( 
not the local one that comes with the dvd ) which will pull in all the 
update packages and many fixes to know issues and give you a fully 
updated and usable system then from an upgraded one.

I myself was experiencing all kinds of bugs or "issues" as some people 
like to call it which was the result of me upgrading to rawhide from F14 
and removing bunch of packages like gnome-applets ibus* at-sp and what 
not to get on that rawhide train which went away with the fully updated 
fresh install.  ( +Gnome-shell did not crash as frequently as it did 
with the upgrade to rawhide )..

Take note that there have been several reports from reporters 
experiencing graphic related problems and all of them have in common 
using an ATI card for example mutter causes segfault in r300 driver on 
my i386 test machine while x86_64 test machine has an NVIDIA cards and 
works just ( alpha ) fine.
