[arch-general] To those that are testing Gnome 3.14

Hi list,

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 [1] 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 [1]

Thanks in advance!
