Gnome Shell locks up when I search

If I click on Activities, and then type a few letters, my shell locks 
up; my mouse moves around but the rest of the GUI just stops dead.  If I 
switch over to a console and check top the gnome-shell process is taking 
100% cpu and will continue to do that for several minutes (that's as 
long as I've left it).

Fedora 16, nVidia GeForce 210 video, dual display, nouveau driver.
