Description of problem:
When running any program that uses SDL (frozen-bubble is a good example but not the only one) and X11 display is set to 24-bit color, metacity terminates immediately with BadMatch errors (over and over, since gnome-session tries to restart it over and over). Changing to 16-bit color, metacity acts fine.
I can try to paste the BadMatch error, if needed. Should this bug be filed for the SDL component ? (SDL-1.2.8-3.2)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run X in 24-bit
2. log in to gnome
3. install and run frozen-bubble
Actual Results: metacity "crashes" over and over, eventually giving up. end up window-managerless.
Expected Results: metacity should remain.
SDL is version SDL-1.2.8-3.2

This isn't a metacity bug, as far as I can tell now. I took it upon myself to
turn on the Composite extension, which caused this strange turn of events. I've
turned it off--problem solved. I'm closing the bug.
