Description of problem:
In "Simple" theme when I open first application, switch worskpace and
switch workspace back to where I opened this application the window of
the application will move about 10 pixels down. When I repeat this
several times gnome will hang.
When I click or move this window it will no longer move down when
I do not know if it is gnome-themes or metacity bug.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change theme to "Simple"
4. Open Accessiories->Calculator
7. repeat 5 and 6 until hang
Actual Results: Calculator window moves down and in the end, after
about 20 workspace swithes the whole gnome hangs
Expected Results: Window does not move and I can switch workspaces
until I die.
My system is fully pathed FC1 on Celeron 1200 with nVidia GeForce2 MX
400 using "NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86 version
1.0-5336". It was upgraded from RH9 to FC1 by installing yum-2.0.5-1
and "yum upgrade".
Workaround: choose another theme or click the first window you open
Other themes are affected. This is the list:

I was totally unable to reproduce on fc3test2+rawhide. Do you still
see this with the latest versions?
I was also unable to reproduce on fc3test3. I think you can close this
