Hmmm, I seem to have a mix of 1.4 and 1.5 packages:
Yep. Give it some time while the 1.5 packages get pushed. Sorry for the delay. It takes longer to get to F17. The mail is slower delivering packages. :/
Can you do a yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing? I'm seeing all of the packages pushed to testing for 17
The updates-testing packages are giving me problems:
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: mate-utils-1.4.0-3.fc17.x86_64 (@updates)
Removing: mate-panel-1.4.0-12.fc17.x86_64 (@updates)
Updated By: mate-panel-1.5.2-4.fc17.x86_64 (updates-testing)
I added --skip-broken and it excluded:
Skipped (dependency problems):
mate-panel x86_64 1.5.2-4.fc17 updates-testing 1.8 M
mate-panel-libs x86_64 1.5.2-4.fc17 updates-testing 33 k
mate-power-manager x86_64 1.5.1-3.fc17 updates-testing 3.0 M
So it updated
And now I can login again, but I get an error pop-up:
"Clock" has quit unexpectedly.
and clicking Reload just fails again.
I suppose it needs the mate-panel updates also.
Yup. Thanks for the report. I'll look into it.
I removed mate-utils and then I was able to update mate-panel and now everything works. (Except, obviously, I'm missing some utilities.)
I'm in the process of rebuilding the package for F17.

The new package (comment 22) has a conflict:
Transaction Check Error:
file /usr/bin/mate-system-log from install of mate-utils-1.4.0-5.fc17.x86_64 conflicts with file from package mate-system-log-1.4.0-3.fc17.x86_64

I removed mate-system-log and then mate-utils installed ok.
The mate-utils package should have an 'Obsoletes: mate-system-log' in the spec (if it truly obsoletes it)
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 18 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing mate-utils-1.4.0-5.fc18'
as soon as you are able to, then reboot.
Please go to the following url:
then log in and leave karma (feedback).
As of Dec. 12th 2012, I've run into this bug (and I just did an update over the weekend of about 400 packages, I assume MATE was one of the things to get updated. The only reason I was able to figure MATE crashing when I logged in was because abrt notifified me when I switched back to LXDE for now, just to get a GUI. Thankfully, none of my other WM's are broke.
The long and the short of this is it appears that MATE-1.5.x is still broke and it's been far longer then 2 days since the last update. Is there a fix for this?
You still get the crash immediately after updating, with the old version still running. Just reboot and try MATE again. Works For Me™ anyway.
A reboot makes things worse. mate-panel crashes and restarts instantly upon login, only way to stop it was to ctrl+alt+backspace to the login screen and swiched back to LXDE for now.

Did you remove mate-system-log per comment#26? It prevents mate-utils from updating. Also, please report your mate-* versions if that isn't your issue. Here are my working versions after to update to 1.5:
I don't appear to have mate-system-log (or mate-utils) installed. Here is the list of packages I have installed related to mate though:
[root@Phaëton ~]# rpm -qa mate-\*; rpm -qa libmate
[root@Phaëton ~]# ls -lash /usr/bin/mate* | grep log
100K -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 97K Nov 22 20:43 /usr/bin/matedialog
Will update comps.

Looks ok to me. Did you report the crash? Does abrt add it here, or create a new crash bug?

Abrt redirected me here as an existing bug. I can log into mate now, but mate-panel crashes and restarts very quickly. Making the WM unusable and my poor cursor goes off into seizure-land till I reset X. I can use my laptop, but w/ a different WM (fluxbox/LXDE/Gnome3 (ICK!)) for now.
OK, so .. MATE works (and the world is right again) ... but there is a problem. When I log in, no more seizures, but I got a completely reset desktop. All of my customizations are gone :(

I suppose this issue belongs in a new bug, but in the meantime, following up on discussion in #mate tonight:
In order for user settings to be carried over from MateConf to GSettings, .convert files need to be provided by each transitioning package. The .convert files are 1:1 mappings of GSettings to MateConf keys, and are used by mateconf-gsettings-data-convert(1), which is launched by the session manager on startup (via .desktop file in /etc/xdg/autostart).
Unfortunately, it seems that these files have not been added to packages. This needs to be done ASAP and IMO should be considered a BLOCKER for 1.5/1.6 in Fedora stable.
Here is an example of what needs to be done:
This also means that, despite being deprecated, mate-conf MUST be shipped (with gsettings support) as part of @mate-desktop for the foreseeable future.
Comment #36 confirms that the original issue is fixed.
Comment #37 is being addressed upstream.
