nautilus- fails to start on any display besides :0.  This is
easily reproduced; change the default display number in gdm.conf, and
nautilus will hang on every login before it even displays anything.  It
seems to get stuck waiting for select() ...

Works for me if I add a display in gdm, or change the only display to 1. Maybe
my interpretation of "change the default display number" is different from yours? 
Exactly what is the line in gdm.conf that you have?
Comment 2 Ed McKenzie 2001-08-01 19:21:48 EDT
If I create a new profile and run startx -- :1, nautilus won't start; if I
strace it from the console, it seems to hang on a select call (lots of strings
beginning with 'GIOP' are being read() at the time, if that's useful info.)

The same profile starts nautilus flawlessly every time on :0.

This is all with nautilus-
Comment 3 Ed McKenzie 2001-08-01 19:22:45 EDT
I should add that having a display running on :0 doesn't seem to affect how
nautilus behaves on other displays.
Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2001-08-02 14:13:14 EDT
Where did you get nautilus- Our current is nautilus-1.0.4-25.
Does it happen with whatever is latest in rawhide?
Comment 5 Ed McKenzie 2001-08-02 17:59:06 EDT
nautilus- was from rawhide (18 july 2001.)

i'll do a clean install of roswell this weekend and see if that fixes it.
Comment 6 Ed McKenzie 2001-08-04 18:08:50 EDT
Roswell fixed it.  Thanks
Comment 7 Ed McKenzie 2001-08-04 20:39:20 EDT
Actually, I lied -- it's still broken.  If I create users A, B, and C and log in
simultaneously on :0, :1, and :2, nautilus only starts on :0.  Each user's
profile works properly when logged in on :0.
Comment 8 Owen Taylor 2001-08-10 11:02:32 EDT
The multiple-users thing is a fam problem. Alex was looking into that,
so I've assigned him the bug.
