    Restart gnome shell after crash

    Oh no, something went wrong.. you saw it too? I don't like that message because if I haven't external monitor I'm not able to save my work. With my external monitor plugged in I switch to tty2 and restart gnome shell as follows:
    Code:
    gnome-shell --display :0 --replace &
    then I'm able to move all hidden windows behind the OH NO message to my second monitor and save my work & logout. The whole shell works fine, so I'm able to continue working as usually BUT the black screen on external monitor with logout button.
    The question is, how to remove/quit/disable/kill/whatever that OH NO message after gnome-shell restart from tty[x] ???
    Thanks

    The simple restart command is from the command prompt Alt + F2
    Code:
    r
    “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can".

    nope.. if gnome shell crashes youcan't use alt+f2 . there is only the black screen with the OH NO! Message, so you can only logout. so if I want to save my work I must restart the GS as I wrote in first post. then GS will work but still there will be the black message.
