I've run into similar issues with GNOME. What I actually do in practice
is just remove all the .gnome/ and related directories from ~/. I look
at it this way: when you upgrade MS Windows, your desktop settings often
get FUBAR'd, so you're better off with a fresh reinstall.
Interestingly, I haven't run into this problem to nearly the same degree
with KDE, which I also use a lot.
Would this kind of scenario (upgrades and such) be a good case for the
"EL" edition of K12LTSP? Thoughts?
Do you GNU!?
