Fedora 26: Login to Gnome fails // Gnome shell doesn't come up

Hi, I am having a multi-user workstation that runs an up-to-date Fedora26 (x86_64).

The problem is that for my main user the Gnome shell wouldn't come up. I can login but then I see a grey screen and a mouse pointer and nothing else happens. The problem appears no matter if choose a Wayland, an Xorg or even a Gnome Classic session.

I have no problem logging into Gnome with any other user on the system.

Any ideas how to approach this? Thanks!

Any ideas how to approach this? Is it possible that a bad extensions prevents the Gnome Shell from coming up? Should I try to delete them? It somehow has to be related to user settings since other users can login into Gnome without any problems. How to find out what causes this "crash"?

Thanks!
