Hi all. I am experiencing a problem regarding logging into my graphical session with Fedora 25 (4.9.5-200.fc25.x86_64).

If I log out of my account, and then I try to log into any account, the screen goes black for a moment, and dumps me back at the login screen.

I switched to tty2 and checked for errors in journalctl. This is repeated many times:

fedora gnome-session-binary: GLib-GObject-CRITICAL: g_object_unref: assertion 'G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed

Followed by:

Unrecoverable failure in required component org.gnome.Shell.desktop

I can start a new GNOME session in tty2 by running startx. However, I can't ever log in again from tty1 until I reboot.

My system is fully updated via "dnf update" as of yesterday.

Extra info: I am using an Nvidia GTX1060, with Nvidia driver:

NVRM version: NVIDIA UNIX x86_64 Kernel Module  375.26  Thu Dec  8 18:36:43 PST 2016
GCC version:  gcc version 6.3.1 20161221 (Red Hat 6.3.1-1) (GCC)

I noticed this issue too on the Live CD.
