GNOME Shell cannot start and dump core immediately at startup. Downgrading to 3.32.0 solves the issue. Lots of references to libmozjs: could this be due to the removed `sed` in recent commit?

Additional info:
* package version(s) - gnome-shell-3.32.0+15+gb7d79a5f0-1
* config and/or log files etc. - attached
* link to upstream bug report, if any - n/a

Steps to reproduce:
1. Upgrade to gnome-shell-3.32.0+15+gb7d79a5f0-1
2. Reboot
3. Try to login
This task depends upon

I am experiencing the crash (core dump) after restoring from sleep/stanby sometimes. Only difference is that in my crashdump I don't have as many entries regarding libmozjs.

My gnome-shell crashes too after restoring from sleep/standby since i updated to 3.32.

It crashes for me as well after resuming from sleep/standby, just sometimes

I am experiencing something similar to this also.

I have attached a couple of seconds worth of journalctl logs containing the core dump.
This is still happening with gnome-shell-3.32.0+16.

If your gnome shell is dumping core at startup, please see https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-shell/issues/1074

I found that disabling extensions was necessary.

`gsettings set org.gnome.shell disable-user-extensions false`

I reported the crash on resume here https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-shell/issues/1066

So far I haven‘t found a fix or workaround

There's a MR in upstream to solve the issue occurring when waking from sleep/suspension: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/mutter/merge_requests/506
