Hey, sorry for being terse. What I wanted to express was that classic is
not just thrown over the fence and never looked at again; it is
maintained and tested upstream. 

I have now taken the time to log out on this F21 system, and log in
again after choosing 'GNOME Classic' from the gdm session chooser. Works
just fine.  I think your problem is more with random ways of starting
graphical sessions from a shell script. That's always half-broken and
basically unsupported. If you want to test a graphical desktop in
Fedora, you should choose it from the session menu on the login screen.
