381.09 Cities Skylines crashes gnome-shell or corrupts activities overview

Launching the game goes one of two ways:

  • Black screen for a bit, then gnome-shell dies, destroying my entire desktop session, bringing down the X server, and dropping me back to gdm.
  • Just sits on a black screen. Can still reach the activities overview, but no windows are visible and the screen flashes corrupt images during the transition. Returning to the desktop flashes more corrupt images and there’s now a completely wrong, mostly solid cyan-ish image in the game window. I can close the game via the X in the upper right corner of the window decorations, and from there gnome seems to recover.

The Vulkan beta 375.27.10 was doing the same thing.

It’s almost like the driver / X server is sending garbage to the compositor instead of the actual window image.
