I had a problem like these with an usb hdd. I was testing one unit and
it worked fine. When I tried to boot system with this drive plugged as a
second hd, it spent a long time to boot (because of Fedora hardware
detection) and then gnome taskbar began to crash. Later I read the
Fedora buglist and found out that this kind of crash was caused by a
corrupted gnome configuration file! (.recently-used in home directory).
Really weird!
