This has appeared in several forums posts. The fix was to remove
metacity from the startup menu. I append below a post to the ubuntu
forums, with the hope that a developer can answer the questions at the
bottom. Any assistance would be appreciated.<br>
I'm running lucid on an amd x86-64 box.<br>

<pre>I had fixed this issue by removing metacity from my startups. It's still
not there, but now, after a couple of updates, metacity is constantly
restarted, as evidenced by repeated commands
ps -ax | grep meta
and by the constant updating of the file %gconf.xml in the directory
Also I had removed the directory
but it has been regenerated.
Before I start mindlessly to remove directories, I'd like to ask a couple of questions:
1. What, besides the autostart menu, starts metacity?
2. What window manager runs the login menu?
