I’m testing GNOME on ‘staging’ now, and had the same problem (GDM worked
okay, but I could not login).  I fixed it by deleting
“~/.local/share/gnome-shell/notifications”.  I left everything else in
my home directory as it was.

The newer GNOME seems much nicer, so this is pretty cool.  The only
problems I see so far are that I lost my background picture, there’s no
icons or text for NetworkManager on the status bar, and icons aren’t
working for applications in my user profile.  I haven’t updated my
profile yet, so that might help the icons.  We’ll see.

Thanks Ricardo for doing the update!
