Description of problem:
It seems that sometimes gmc crashes on startup. I am using Windowmaker as the window manager with gnome.
I use startx to start X (not gdm or xdm)
gmc sometimes starts and then dies, and then gets restarted.
Also it seems that I cannot kill gmc, without it restarting itself.
The icons get deleted and then they replace themselves on the desktop (I no longer want desktop icons) even if you save the session they
come back in the next session.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. delete a 'default' icon (floppy, home, etc)
2. save your gnome session
3. exit gnome
4. restart x, they are back
1. kill -9 gmc (the pipd of gmc of course)
2. watch it restart itself.
1. sometimes when gmc starts it crashes. not sure why then it restarts itself
gmc restarts itself because it is in the session manager as Respawn. You can
run 'session-properties' to remove it. Additionally, it tries to recreate your
devices on startup. I don't see this behavior changing.
