This is not related to radeon. I found now, that there is an update to 
telepathy, which caused the JS ERROR in gnome shell main.js. Secondly I 
had to delete all .gnome/.config etc. Still the font is corrupted on 
RV280, lot of artefacs everywhere and gnome-shell crashes on attempt to 
display "applications" menu (abrt triggered but not yet submited).
