Re: themes

On a connected note I have come across serious problems with the stock
metal theme.

On many occasions if I have the theme selected the panel/nautilus will
crash and not restart.

Dont know if it is a xft2 related problem or not.

Has anyone else come across this - it does only happen with metal
