Hello everyone!

Since a couple of days, every time I plug a removable device (USB Drive, SD card or Hard Drive), it makes my desktop environment reset and close my session, jumping me back to the login screen.

journalctl -e's output (only the beginning of the bolded section of the output)

Object Clutter.Clone (0x56127655f8d0), has been already finalized. Impossible to get any property from it.
gnome-shell[2701]: Object Clutter.Clone (0x56127655f8d0), has been already finalized. Impossible to set any property to it.
org.gnome.Shell.desktop[2701]: == Stack trace for context 0x561274cd5170 ==
A lot of stuff here...

dmesg's output

[drm:wait_panel_status [i915]] *ERROR* PPS state mismatch
[drm:wait_panel_status [i915]] *ERROR* PPS state mismatch
rfkill: input handler disabled

nvidia-modeset: Freed GPU:0 (GPU-a2132636-974c-cba4-5912-ecb030e4238f) @ PCI:0000:01:00.0

Can anyone help me?

After some tests, I discovered that the process triggering the shutdown was indeed one of the builtin extensions of gnome-shell, in particular the places one. The faulty package is gnome-shell-extension-places-menu, and the fix for that is already in the upcoming update of the package.

Until the update happens, I managed to solve it by doing the following:

cd /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions/
mv placeDisplay.js placeDisplay.js.old

Be aware that the location of the extensions might be in ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions, if it has been installed locally.

Reference of the bug can be found here.
