metacity is not started.

gnome-session-2.25.91-1.fc11 has same problems.
Metacity is not started.
I tried to edit gconf schemas with gconf-editor as belows.
And I copy gnome-wm.desktop to the directories as belows.
Then metacity is started successfully.
And a menu bar and a title bar with every window are appeared and works.
1. gnome-session schema change
old : windowmanager=metacity
new : windowmanager=gnome-wm
2. copy a gnome-wm.desktop file to
I think that new gnome-session needs gnome-wm instead of metacity.
Don't you ?

There is obviously something amiss with your installation, since everybody else _is_ getting metacity. It would be interesting to know if your problem goes away in a fresh user account.
After I applied latest rawhide updates, this problem is disappered.
I don't know why.
