Description Mark 2007-03-19 14:48:27 UTC
Steps to Reproduce:
1. just start gnome in any user
Actual results:
Gnome crashes

Expected results:
Gnome crashes

Additional info:

i`m having a strange bug in Fedora Core 7 latest version with all updates.
somehow the fast user switching seems to cause problems (while loading in the
applet) and crashes gnome completely. the only thing you can do than is restart X.
thankfully the gnome bug reporting tool found it out and offered me to disable
the broken applet and i did that. (took me about 100x restarting...)

now this applet is turned off in my root account and gnome is running fine but
somehow my user account still has problems. sometimes gnome fully loads without
any problems.. sometimes the desktop icons are all gone and most of the time the
top bar (with the applets in it) is just not completely loaded and simply be
useless because i can`t click any things in it.

now could this also be because of the broken fast user switching?
if so.. how do i remove it from gnome in text mode? since i obviously can`t
remove it by clicking on it because the entire bar is useless most of the times..

Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here: to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
