slackware 12 + gnome

Two ways to look at it...
Chances are even though Dropline for 12 is Beta, I would doubt you'd run into anything other than slight irritations at worst, and with updates, those irritations and bugs will go away. On the other hand, what is a few months if you are concerned about it?
I've never tried installing Gnome desktop from scratch for Slackware, but I have for Crux and it was a holy nightmare for me. I never did get it fully functional. I personally would be afraid of trying to build Gnome that way.
I really can't imagine running into any really horrible problems with the Dropline Beta. Besides, if you do, you can always run KDE. Just my opinion though.

I managed to build KDE and xfce , but never gnome.
For Dropline gnome 2.18.3 for Slackware 12.0 , it's quite stable and i didn't have a serious problem until know.
