You can't expect developers to not utilise the hardware that is available because there is a bug on your system. Apparently it either always has been broken (and you just did not notice it) or it coincidently broke at the same time you upgraded to GNOME3 (by getting the broken driver at the same upgrade).
> The problems with nouveau's 3D support and GNOME-Shell are not exactly there because of a lack of my bug-report. Look in the bug trackers yourself I'd love to see nouveau support improve.
. Which bugs? Sure there are bugs but stop claiming that GNOME3 does not work on nouveau just because it hits a particular bug on your system. Just tested it again (NVA0 GPU) works just fine.
