Yes, i confirm that. 
After the update and a system restart the panels are deactivated and irreparable
Additionally there is the power management error and a crash as soon as the
background image is changed.

Comment 3 J.Jansen 2006-11-10 17:10:38 EST
Found the problem : somewhere in the process the package metacity was corrupted

Solution : get the metacity-2.16.0-5.fc6.i386.rpm and reinstall it with:
      rpm --force --upgrade metacity-2.16.0-5.fc6.i386.rpm

No idea what caused the corruption.
Comment 4 P.West 2006-11-10 17:54:40 EST
I downloaded "metacity-2.16.0-5.fc6.i386.rpm" from the Core Repository and
successfully installed it with "rpm --force --upgrade
metacity-2.16.0-5.fc6.i386.rpm". A restart of the system did not bring any
success, the problem is still persistent.
Comment 5 P.West 2006-11-11 16:54:49 EST
I solved the problem by removing the complete Gnome group with yum and the
window manager Fluxbox and Yum Gui pirut respectively. Then "yum install
gnome-panel pirut gdm", resolve dependencies, restart X and the Gnome desktop
was usable again although all programs like e.g. OpenOffice had to be reinstalled.
Comment 6 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-03-18 14:40:51 EDT

We no longer support Fedora Core 6 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?
