Description Aaron Oneal 2006-04-27 13:33:16 EDT
Description of problem:

Switching from Gnome to KDE doesn't close gnome-panel and you end up having 
both KDE and Gnome panels open simultaneously.  This is very confusing to a 
new user.

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure Fedora to use Gnome (already default), but ensure both Gnome and 
KDE are installed.
2. Login to a Gnome session.
3. Logout.
4. Click the Sessions button on the login screen and select KDE.
5. Login.
Actual results:
Both KDE and Gnome panels appear on your desktop and continue to do so even 
after reboot.

Expected results:
I expected to see only KDE, not both KDE and Gnome panels.

Additional info:
I later learned this is easily fixed by killing the gnome-panels task.  Upon 
logout, X no longer saves gnome-panels as part of the session and future 
logins are gnome-panel free.  While a trivial fix, it's still confusing for 
new users who aren't familiar with Linux.
Comment 1 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-03-18 14:34:10 EDT

We no longer support Fedora Core 5 and I am currently trying to get my open bug
count down to a more manageable state.  I'm going to close this bug as WONTFIX.
 If this issue is still a concern for you, would you mind trying to reproduce on
a supported version of Fedora and reopening?
