Description Tim Waugh 2006-03-27 03:17:43 EST
Description of problem:
After enabling core dumps, I've noticed a new core file in my home directory
each new time I log in.  It is from the metacity from the previous session.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add 'ulimit -c unlimited' to .bash_profile
2. Log in; log out
3. Log in; look for core file
Actual results:
#0  meta_compositor_unref (compositor=0x0) at compositor.c:162
162       if (compositor->repair_idle)
#1  0x0000000000419bd5 in meta_display_close (display=0x6d9c20)
    at display.c:926
926       meta_compositor_unref (display->compositor);
#2  0x000000000042b258 in main (argc=1, argv=0x7fffff89cee8) at main.c:505
505             meta_display_close (tmp->data);
#3  0x000000376d71d084 in __libc_start_main () from /lib64/libc.so.6

FWIW (I didn't change this setting):

[tim@cyberelk ~]$ gconftool-2 -g '/apps/metacity/general/compositing_manager'

I'm getting this as well, on a plain old i386 Athlon.
