I'm actually surprised with the jump in gnome versions between minor
point releases.  I guess they trying to strike a different balance for
the GUI / Desktop and Server services.  I actually do appreciate it for
my desktops.  GNOME3 is the default (and likely the most tested) desktop.

There are new gnome-session and gdm updates that I am getting ready to
push to CR .. gnome-session-3.28.1-6.el7.src.rpm and
gdm-3.28.2-10.el7.src.rpm .. no idea what the actually do yet, but you
can see if they fix any of your issues by looking at the upstream
errata, etc.
