Same happens with me.
Rawhide F10

"error window x3" as o\p.
No further info in /var/log/messages, dmesg.

Power-Managment applet seems to behave as expected after login.

Comment 2 Orlando Arias 2008-06-24 18:10:34 EDT

Same happens on my dad's machine. Smolt profile on link above. For an added
twist, the entire GNOME desktop borks after login, ignoring all set
configuration and eliminating all from pannels, menus, shortcuts etc...

Main difference is that for my dad it claims to be corrupted.

If possible I'd like to change the severity of this bug to High. If anybody has
a fix for this, let me know, KDE works fine for the most part, but my dad and I
like GNOME better.
Comment 3 Thomas Meyer 2008-07-23 13:14:30 EDT
The cause of above error is probably a wrongly labeled filesystem (keyword:
selinux). To fix this enter as root user:
/sbin/fixfiles onboot

Then reboot. Your system will be relabeled then. The error should vanish then
