Sounds like you may experience https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=660482

Try updating to GNOME 3.2.1, and see if the problem goes away ?
Comment 3 Doug Maxey 2011-10-26 15:44:38 EDT
Is 3.2.1 in updates-testing, or do I need to build it?
Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2011-10-26 16:20:56 EDT
it is already out of testing
Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2011-11-04 09:44:49 EDT
assuming this is fixed, then.
