Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: metacity

We are running VMWare browser appliances upgraded to Ubuntu Edgy. After
last upgrade to metacity 1:2.14.5-0ubuntu1 desktop freezes after a few
minutes. Using Alt+F2 and killall metacity "resolves" the problem
temporarily, but in next few minutes metacity freezes again. After 3
attempts even Alt+F2 stops working.

Downgrade to 1:2.14.3-0ubuntu2 is stable, our users report no metacity
freezes so far (2 days).
