Description Michael Duersch 2006-04-13 10:34:27 EDT
Description of problem:
For an unknown reason, the ~/.rh-fontconfig/.fonts.cache-2 became corrupted,
causing metacity to abort with "segmentation fault".  The end result is the
inability to log into Gnome using that account until the ~/.rh-fontconfig
directory is removed.

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

How reproducible:
Always, once the fonts cache file has become "corrupted?"

Additional info:
I've attached the offending .fonts.cache-2 file in case it's of any value.

This is not a metacity bug but fontconfig. It happens on my systems as well.

Please change component to fontconfig and adjust summary.

I believe this fontconfig bug should be fixed in rawhide.
