  running sugar causes left-click not to work properly in GNOME

Status in Sugar Learning Platform:
  Fix Released
Status in “sugar-0.88” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in “sugar-0.88” source package in Lucid:
  In Progress

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.

  == TEST CASE ==
   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
