Description of problem:
I'm unable to shutdown X when running gnome. The mouse freezes during shutdown
and all I can see is a single colored screen with the mouse. I tried with
blackbox and it works ok (shutdown works ok and I'm back in the console) so I'm
not sure if this is an xorg problem or a gnome problem.
After the freeze I can ssh to the machine as usuall. I checked the process list
and it looks like all gnome related processes including the X server have
already exited.

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

How reproducible:
Always. Happens whenever I shutdown gnome.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run startx with gnome as the window manager.
2. Log off via the menu or ctrl+alt+backspace.
Actual results:

Expected results:
Get back to the console.

Comment 1 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-12-11 10:33:41 EST
is it that gdm isn't coming back up?

does pkill gdm or gdm-restart help?
Comment 2 Etay Meiri 2006-12-11 10:39:08 EST
No gdm. My machine starts in runlevel 3 and I start xorg using 'startx'.
