Description Per Bjornsson 2006-02-28 01:10:16 EST
Description of problem:
After upgrading from FC4 (with all recent updates) to FC5t3 using Anaconda,
gnome-panel didn't start - I think gnome-session crashed on startup.

After moving the old ~/.gnome2/session file out of the way everything worked as
expected. I will attach this file to this bug.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC4, update, log in as a user, and save a changed session
2. Upgrade to FC5t3 using Anaconda
3. Attempt to log in as the same user again
Actual results:
No gnome-panel started; as far as I could tell, gnome-session was not running
after that.

Expected results:
A functional Gnome environment.

This should have been fixed in rawhide a couple of days ago. If not, please reopen.

OK, sorry about the superfluous report - indeed it all appears to work now.
