bug#40116: GDM: Memory leak in .gnome-shell-real process

I can't use GNOME anymore because of the problem I explained in the following 


On recent system upgrades, the problem got worse. Before, I could get to the 
end of the day despite the leak; but now it takes around 3 hours for the 
.gnome-shell-real process run by the gdm user to eat the remaining RAM.

It seems that the bug is stronger in the GNOME desktop, but I've seen, at least 
once, .gnome-shell-real using an abnormal amount of RAM while in sway (about 
800 MiB).

My current guix:
