gdb backtrace of the crash

I got a random crash (SIGSEGV) in gnome-shell. I am using gnome-shell 3.26.2-1, Xorg 2:1.19.5-1 and GNOME 3.26 on Debian buster. If the below gdb backtrace and the attached full gdb backtrace isn't useful, please close this bug. The core file will be automatically deleted in a week but I can keep it around for longer if needed.

Core was generated by `gnome-shell --replace'.
Program terminated with signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
