After upgrading libxkbcommon to 0.9.0-1, Gnome did not start after a reboot. The log messages are:

gnome-shell[822]: xkbcommon: ERROR: failed to add default include path /usr/share/X11/xkb
kernel: gnome-shell[822]: segfault at 0 ip 00007f797e583eb0 sp 00007ffd6c703498 error 6 in[7f797e57a000+1b000]

Downgrading to 0.8.4-1 fixed the problem.
