Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 188913
metacity segmentation fault
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:30 EST
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):
Always, once the fonts cache file has become "corrupted?"
I've attached the offending .fonts.cache-2 file in case it's of any value.

corrupted(?) fonts cache file
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.
