Description You 2009-05-11 20:45:16 EDT
Description of problem:
Clicking on enable desktop effects in System >> Preferences >> Desktop Effects kicks me out of teh logged in session.

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

Latest rawhide of everything - Card is Radeon X1950 pro 256MB

How reproducible:
Go to System >> Preferences >> Desktop Effects and click enable

Actual results:
I see the login screen

Expected results:
Wobbly windows

Additional info:
I am using x86_32 at the moment - installed from the preview live media.

Before, I had an install of X86_64 updated from beta and compiz worked fine in there - however i had not turned it off in a while, so it might be a start up problem. However, a problem that I did have for a bit was that sometimes logging in failed and I would be kicked back to the login screen - on my second or third login I would successfully log in, so it may be the same bug but less prevalent on 64 bit due to some timings...

Also need to add that I have no xorg.cof set up.

This may have been a bug in another package. Since reporting, I have moved from the i586 kernel to the i686.pae and also an update updated both mesa and the ati driver and since then this issue is no more.
