Description Adam Kropelin 2007-01-10 19:13:03 EST
Description of problem:
The topmost gnome-panel on the GNOME desktop locks up (stops refreshing and 
does not respond to input) periodically. This happens once or twice a day and 
can be remedied by killing the gnome-panel process, at which time a replacement 
will be launched automatically. You do not have to be interacting with the 
desktop or the panel for the lockup to occurr; in fact it usually happens while 
I'm away from the computer. Perhaps an interaction with the default screen 

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

How reproducible:
100% ... all it takes is patience

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL5 Beta 2
2. Log into GNOME desktop session
3. Wait until lockup

I'm seeing this on Fedora 8 too.  The panel process is chewing CPU while locked up.

It looks like we've gone into an infinite loop resizing something; here is a
typical backtrace I get attaching gdb:
