Description of Problem: following error message received when logging out of
(nautilus:902):Gtk-Critical**:file gtkwidget.c: line 2933 (gtk_widget_event):
assertion 'WIDGET_REALIZED_FOR_EVENT (widget, event)' failed
Waiting for X server to shutdown The application 'gnome-panel' lost its
connection to the display: 0,0;
Most likely X server was shutdown or you killed/destroyed the application
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Red Hat Linux 8
How Reproducible: happens every time at logout no matter which account is
chosen and must manually logout of account. Error still shows during a system
shutdown, but system will shutdown and restart normally every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. logout of Gnome session or system shutdown
Actual Results: does not appear to have adverse affect on system for restart
but does require manual logout of account once I have exited from the Gnome
Not really a RHN problem - more of a gnome-desktop problem.
These errors are harmless other than the annoyance of seeing them. If you're
having trouble with logout, it's unrelated to the error messages. Can you
clarify what happens when you logout?
Received via email: "What happens at logout is after all the error messages show
on the screen, I am at the command line prompt still logged in as the last user
of the system. From there I have to type in the logout command in order to
change user accounts."
Are you starting GNOME via "startx"? If so then logout will only exit GNOME,
not exit your session, which is the intended behavior. If you
log in the usual way (via the graphical login screen), then
your entire login session is made up of GNOME, so logging out of GNOME will end it.
