    But, on a positive note, I have been running XFCE (with gdm) for almost a week with no system (i.e. nouveau) crashes.
    A pragmatic solution. Thanks for the update.

    I revisited GNOME after using it on a Leap 42.3 machine successfully and found that in both installations (Leap 15.0 and 42.3), I avoided crashes by using the Window switcher in favor of the Application switcher for my Alt+Tab behavior (but I'm not sure if I'm using these features' proper names). The crashing only differed between 42.3's session crashing and restarting itself, and 15.0's freezing of the display for the entire system.

    Additionally, I found that the redshift application can cause some crashing as well, so I haven't tried disabling redshift and using the Application switcher, but that may work as well. However, I would rather use redshift than the Application switching feature.

    In short, I think I can avoid crashes in GNOME on Leap 15.0 with the nouveau driver by:

    I will keep updating this thread if I figure out how to use GNOME with even fewer of these restrictions.
