Description Stewart Adam 2006-11-12 16:27:27 EST
Description of problem:
Once desktop-effects are enabled, disabling them kills Compiz (starts metacity)
but will not kill the window decorator.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable desktop-effects
2. Disable desktop-effects
3. run "ps -A | grep window-decorator"
Actual results:
A window decorator (used to be gnome-window-decorator, not gtk-window decorator)
will still be running

Expected results:
Effects are stopped, so the window decorator should be killed, too.
