Description Tim Vismor 2006-08-12 12:49:58 EDT
Description of problem:

For the last couple of releases, if compiz is set under the gconf key

/apps/gnome-session/rh/window_manager

A blank screen comes up after login to gnome. When the key is reset to metacity,
there are no problems. 

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

gnome-session-2.15.90-3.fc6

How reproducible:

Always

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Enable compiz as wm through system>preferences>more preferences>desktop effects.
2.Reboot and log into gnome


Additional info:

There is a bug in the gnome-wm script: the compiz) clause is not terminated. The
fix is trivial.

Contrary to the subject line this bug kills all windows managers and
not only compiz. gnome-session simply does not start (or is terminally
confused). Adding a missing line, like in the report, restores sanity.

Thanks guys, sorry for the breakage.  The fix should hopefully make tonight's
compose and be in tomorrow's rawhide.
