OTOH, doing this inhibited a proper start of my GNOME session at next
login: only Nautilus started (I can tell because I've it handle my
desktop icons) and I could use it to browse the filesystem, but GNOME
Shell didn't see to be running.  Reverting the above with "disable" [*]
fixed the issue, and at next login GNOME session started properly,
including GNOME Shell.

I haven't yet filed this as a bug report, because my package mix is
kinda unusual at present: Debian testing + hand-picked gpg from
experimental. But it might be useful for you to know about this. Let me
know how I can debug it further and/or if you'd like to move this
discussion into a dedicated bug report (and when).
