Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: linux-backports-modules-hardy-generic

I am currently using the Ubuntu Hardy Alpha 3 (Clean install from the live cd.).  The version in my grub loader is image 2.6.24-5 generic (all current updates applied)
The only changes to the system I made were installing Google Earth as root, it went to /opt/google-earth.
It didn't work properly, and I found it hard to remove.  I  removed it rudely by emptying the google-earth directory, then deleting that directory.
There were updates downloaded and applied to the system during the session when I performed the erasure of the google-earth directory.  Since then, every login, no matter of session selection, has resulted in a file browser window opening and closing in rapid succession with no control of it.   
After 6 to 10 open/close cycles it stops on its own, however sometimes this seems to result in compiz-real crashing (in sync with the end of the event).  compiz can be restarted without any issues.  
There are no other problems.
