My pet hate is gnome components (applets included) which load before
parsing their gconf info, then realise they assumed the wrong settings
and refresh two seconds later. (an easy way to reproduce this is to use
different font settings - dpi, name, size than the system settings)

The worst part are dialogs where buttons shift when the refresh occurs
(gnome notices font settings are different - enlarges dialog - buttons
are right-aligned and move right). Sometimes bad timing means one button
is replaced by another while I'm clicking it (and remember the "safe"
choice is the right one so when the ui move right the safe button is
almost always replaced by a more dangerous one)
