I've installed gnome-shell on Ubuntu 11.10 but now, when I'm on Unity, and when I drag and drop text in gedit, gedit crashes ! I've tried to uninstall gnome-shell, but nothing changes.

Could you start gedit from the terminal and do what causes it to crash and then include the terminal output in your question? – N.N. Nov 20 '11 at 12:27

I was just reading the Gnome 3.2.2 release notes and came accross this:

gedit 3.2.3
New Features and Fixes
- Fix crash when dropping file in gedit with snippets plugin active (Paolo Borelli)

Maybe this is somehow related. It's worth a try to disable the snippets plugin (or update to 3.2.3).
