I have a favor to ask to those that are currently testing Gnome 3.14.
In gnome 3.12 I am having problems with user switching, which is quite important for me. In particular, I had this annoying bug  since I installed Gnome in this computer. When Xorg 1.16 came out, it broke completely the switch user functionality for me (it caused my system to hang, forcing me to send a SIGTERM with Alt+SysRq+e). For what it's worth, I created a /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config, but that did not solve the issue. At the time I didn't want to investigate the issue since I needed the system to Just Work(tm), and I simply downgraded Xorg. I'm still running with the old Xorg, but I know that I can't go on like this forever.
If anyone running Gnome 3.14 happened to test the switch user functionality, I would be interested to know: - if you are observing any problem switching user with Xorg 1.16, - if you are observing Bug #730360; to test, see 
Thanks in advance!
Yes, it seems to still be broken in 3.14. I have had no issues without switching, but now that I tried it: - - The first time I "switched users" to myself, GNOME froze in the activities when I tried to open a terminal (because I had forgotten to give the new test user a password). I switched to a virtual console and did a reboot. - - The second time I clicked the "Switch User" button I wanted to check how many virtual terminals were open. It froze completely (except for standby nothing worked) when I switched terminals, although maybe that's because of the Intel driver. I did a non-clean poweroff. - - The third time I actually switched users. I could not switch back anymore from the log-in screen of the test user. When I tried the log-in-as-different-user button the screen was only gray with a pointer. I had to manually Ctrl+Alt+F2, which gave me the test user's log-in screen again. After repeating this for a while it froze and I rebooted. journalctl shows gdm-password repeatedly complaining that

even though archie has a password; I also could log-in as archie. I did not see anything with shadow opacity in the journal though.
So I think what you mean is still broken.
