I am running Ubuntu 13.04, with the Gnome3 PPA (ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3) enabled. Before installing updates from the PPA, gnome-screenshot works fine. After updating (from the PPA) to gnome-screenshot version 3.7.5, pressing the [PrtScn] button makes my screen turn completely gray. I am forced to kill gnome-screenshot by launching a virtual session and typing killall gnome-screenshot.

This problem is certainly caused by the Gnome3 PPA update, but can anyone help?
