Desktop frozen and panels disappear after installing gnome-shell 3.2 in Ubuntu 11.10

I've recently performed a clean install of Oneric Ocelot from Live CD (after formatting my hard-disk and creating new partitions). One of the new things I decided to install was the gnome-shell and gnome-tweak-tool, since I wanted much more control than what the unity offered. So, I installed both gnome-shell and gnome-tweak-tool by using apt-get install. However, I'm facing two issues while logging in to my new gnome 3.2 shell:

[1.] The top-panel and bottom status-panel have both disappeared. (screen-1)

[2.] When I open a window, it becomes frozen i.e. it cannot be moved or resized - and does not have a close/minimize button. (screen-2)

Also, this does not happen when I login using the "Gnome Classic" or "Gnome Classic (No Effects)" shell.

Hope you can illuminate me in this regards!
