Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2009-03-25 16:34:03 EDT
Description of problem:
If compositing is turned on, metacity causes the GNOME session to be aborted on suspend. On resume, the user is presented with the GDM login screen.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn on compositing (apps->metacity->general->compositing_manager)
2. suspend
3. resume
Actual results:
On resume, user presented with GDM screen

Expected results:
On resume, the user's desktop is presented. This still works if compositing is disabled

Additional info:
This used to work in F-10 (and perhaps F-11 alpha)
Comment 1 Søren Sandmann Pedersen 2009-04-22 18:04:52 EDT
Sorry, we can't support the metacity compositor (it's only available in gconf for a reason). Until gnome shell arrives, compiz is the recommended compositing solution.

Feel free to file a bug upstream.
