           Version: unspecified
          Platform: i386
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED

This happened after I made a reboot while saving my session. When ubuntu started
again, it would hang loading metacity if I selected "last session" or "GNOME".
It starts normally if I select "Failsafe GNOME."

My ~/.xsession-errors file:
