I agree completely and take full responsibility for this breakage. There
were a couple of unfortunate events leading up to this: first the
'gnome-updates' branch got "destroyed"; causing it to be merged into
'staging', which in turn was holding up the 'core-updates' progress.

In the future I won't go through with such a large update without
getting feedback from actual users.

Mark, others: Can you try these patches and see if they work for you
(extracted from Keis patch).
