Bug description:
After installing this package, the mouse is not working like its supposed to in Gnome. <ctrl> needs to be pressed when clicking for the left mouse button to work. Bug only appears after sugar is used.  Henry Grover wrote this shell script to fix the bug temporarily:

#Fix metacity clicking problem caused by alsroot's sugar, run in the home directory of whoever has the problem

rm .gconf/apps/%gconf.xml
rm .gconf/apps/metacity/%gconf.xml
rm .gconf/apps/metacity/general/%gconf.xml

== SRU INFO ==
This bug makes metacity unusable outside of Sugar.

The solution has been verified as working on Maverick, and was accepted upstream.

 0) Create a new user 
 1) From GDM Launch a gnome-session with that user
 2) Open a resizable windows (e.g Places/Home Folder)
 3) Move the window with Alt+Left button and Resize it with Alt+Middle Button
 4) Run sugar (Applications/Education/Sugar)
 5) Verify that you can still move / resize the window with the modifier in step 3
