I built a slightly modified version of this package with 'libnotify'
support removed (removing it from both 'inputs' and from the
'arrange-to-link-libxul-with-libraries-it-might-dlopen' phase), and also
attempting (but failing) to downgrade to gtk+-2. The resulting IceCat
still uses gtk+-3, but so far it has not locked up my GNOME session.
My hypothesis is that when 'libnotify' support is enabled, somehow a bug
in gnome-shell is triggered.
