There have been a lot of changes with gnome-session and the gnome desktop evironment in general and the old method of
launching a gnome session on OS X doesn't work anymore. This is largely to do with gnome-shell requiring X11
compositing features that are not likely to be implemented in the Apple X11 server any time soom.
There's been some renewed work upstream on a gnome-flashback (previously known as gnome-fallback) session that works
around this but it's definitely a work in progress. If you'll file a ticket against gnome-session, I'll up the priority
on this issue and provide some status on the current situation and progress as it occurs.
