It could be due to bug #741549.

You could try booting with "enforcing=no" to see if it is a problem relating to SELinux.

There may be more information in /var/log/messages.

What is the graphic Processor you are using is it from Nvidia ?

Also I guess you have already visited the Fedora Wiki regarding Gnome 3 Crash issue.

If you have or don't have nvidia you can have problems with SELinux http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=270359

Hello friend, it is preferable that you make a new install, not an upgrade.

If it is bug #741549, as Tim Waugh has suggested, then

su -c 'chcon -t icc_data_home_t ~/.local/share/icc'

should fix the problem.

Try creating a new user and logging in. See if that works.

After an F15 to G16 upgrade, I was stuck at "Oh no! something has gone wrong. logoff." as Gnome was encountering an unrecoverable error after login.

I found that "restorecon -Rv ." (issued from an alternate console) on my home directory fixed it.

Do you have any extensions installed? AFAIK, some make the shell crash if you don't have an icon set for your user (if you haven't: <name>-menu, click on the default, placeholder icon, in the "User Accounts" dialog, click on that icon again :-) and select one from the list).

Insufficient data. Check out ~/.xsession-errors file in your home directory for further information.
