That should not happen in Fedora anymore.

Can you check in the system when you can and report the problem if it 
exists with the Xorg log and information about your hardware (smolt 
profile for instance)?

None of the Fedora 7 systems that I checked requires XFS. I suspect you 
are just seeing this from a older version. I have XFS deamon disabled on 
startup and no Xorg configuration at all and Fedora 7 has been working 
fine including desktop effects. Dell D420 with Intel Xorg driver.
