Oh no! Something has gone wrong. (GNOME 3 login issue)

Hi guys and galls,
I'm testing few older gpraphics cards and few nvidia cards have issue
when using nouveao module that after typing in login info I don't see
GNOME Shell nor compatible mode dekstop but just get message saying:
"Oh no! Something has gond wrong. A problem has occured and the system
can't recover. Please log out and try again."

This looks like Fedora tried to load GNOME Shell but it didn't detect
card features correctly so it fails. My question is why GNOME doens't
just switch to compatible mode instead of crashing?

Which logs are relevant with this issue? Should I look at X log or
GNOME Shell has some of its own logs, and if it has where are they
located? I'm interested to see what causes the issue.

I tried also loading nvidia proprietary module but it looks it doesn't
support latest X in Fedora 15.

I'm willing to work with devels to track down bugs and make Fedora 15
and GNOME Shell better but need some guidance.
