On my second computer (an EeePC 900 with Ubuntu 11.10) Ubuntu One
always worked and still works flawlessly, it's just my Ubuntu 10.10
machine that has those problems. And the problem does only seem to be
after startup. If I kill ubuntuone-launch and then start it again, it
work flawlessly there too.

Maybe fissling with the program start order at startup would fix the
problem. Before doing anything else I will try the following, I think:
Remove ubuntuone-launch from gnome-session-properties.
Create a script that starts ubuntuone-launch after a one minute (or so) delay.
Add the new script to gnome-session-properties.

If this works, it seems like ubuntuone-launch is interfering with
something, right?

Kind regards
