fail whale triggers too easily
Last modified: 2012-03-11 02:18:20 UTC
When I do Alt-F2 r twice in the shell, I get a fail whale.
Even if the first Alt-F2 r was 2 days ago !
Not a good experience.
a) investigate if we can make this more specific to actual crashes
b) make it only trigger if the same thing crashes multiple times _in quick succession_

It's already supposed to work this way, and that works in my experience (I have to kill gnome-shell several times a day because of some driver issue). But never tried doing the "r" in run dialog like this.
This might be actually be an issue caused by the restart by run dialog. I'd guess that gnome-session tries to restart gnome-shell twice, but gnome-shell restarted itself instead, which triggers the issue in gnome-session.
Dup of bug 648384?

It's similar, but I'm not completely sure it's the same thing: this bug is not related to timing at all, while bug 648384 seems to indicate that this only happens if you do it twice in a minute (which is wrong, but expected with the current code).
