Description of problem:
Upon logging out of my Gnome 2 session, my keyboard bindings no longer function.
 When the application starts up, I see the Desktop and Window Management
sections but see no arrow to allow me to configure any options (I will attach a

It seems to be a permissions related problem since if I execute (via sudo)
gnome-keybindings-properties from a terminal, it executes fine and shows me all
the available options.

Strangely, my panel also does not reflect any open windows (see second
attachment).  I imagine corruption has taken effect, but perhaps there is an
easier solution or explanation than just blowing up the ~/.gnome2 directory?
