After upgrading Gnome I've noticed a new recurrent problem. Something in Claws Mail is causing Gnome shell to dump core every time application starts. I can notice that UI freezes for a second with no title bar or content in the window, then it goes on as normal.

Additional info:
* claws-mail 3.17.7-1
* gnome-shell 3.38.1-1

Steps to reproduce:
- Boot to system
- Open terminal, browser... (everything fine)
- Open Claws Mail (new coredump)

This task depends upon

There is another error appearing almost at the same time with coredump each time:

oct 06 10:39:03 host gnome-shell[1045]: Error in freeze/thaw accounting
oct 06 10:39:08 host systemd-coredump[2345]: Process 1045 (gnome-shell) of user 1000 dumped core.

Same things happens when I open guake.

How it started: I did a full system upgrade, then installed wine and therefore a bunch of multilib and lib32 graphics dependencies to run an experiment and then removed all of them based on the pacman log.
After a restart a few things were wrong: the most obvious one is executing guake now crashes gnome-shell and it dumps core. It then restarts (similar to being passed a -3 signal) and guake opens after the 1~2 seconds delay. Colors on gnome-terminal are different. It is set to inherit system colors, but the color shades are obviously off now (e.g. you can easily tell by looking at tmux status bar color) . As if it is somehow ignoring the preferences. My gnome extensions were deactivated at first too.
As far as I can tell, opening and closing guake works correctly in a fresh new user account. Also it seems like in the first couple of seconds of logging into my account rapidly opening/closing guake works fine and then after a second would crash gnome every time.
