Yet another GNOME test -- screenshot utility broken

As I do occasionally, I used GNOME 3 instead of Xfce 4.12 today to start my work. It all fell apart when the GNOME screenshot utility barely worked.

Update: I mapped GNOME Screenshot to alt-P instead of PrintScreen, and that works, but it's hard to choose the type of image I want, which is JPG, and the only way to make it work is to take the PNG offered and convert it later.

In contrast, the Xfce screenshot tool works with the PrintScreen key and makes any kind of image I want with no complaining.
