Actual Results:  some applications won't close but continue working in
erratic manner (will respond to alt key, but won't repond to mouse).
Eventually system will freeze.  

Expected Results:  Application should close and gnome desktop should

Additional info:

Mouse and keyboard operate normally in KDE desktop.

Comment 2 victor lorenz 2004-10-15 12:30:00 EDT
Oops. Not really fixed; problem re-occured. Appears to be related to
Evolution 2.0.2-1. Evolution had same behaviour under KDE i.e.
wouldn't close. Removed (unistalled) Evolution. Problem removed from
Gnome;  All applications I tried now close properly in Gnome.
