Thank you very much for testing.

Confirmed:  gdm3 shows the 'fail whale' modal dialog;  at least the
clock and power-off button are visible, but it is not possible to click

Not really the same situation as gdm3, but the same uninformative 'fail
whale' modal dialog is shown.  But in fact, behind it is a seemingly
functional window manager and panel with menus...

I was able to manually start those things, by using 'xinit', from which
I could launch the basic GNOME apps (terminal, calculator, file manager,
settings page, telepathy) as I've just explained here (with screenshot) :
