I think this is from using an older snapshot. Try getting a newer
snapshot, and see if that helps. GNOME usually gets better, not worse.

Well, you definitely cannot compile MICO. I would suggest not compiling
it, and just getting the rpms from RedHat. The rpms usually only contain
those programs that build, so you will not be bothered by applications
that are very broken.

The daily RedHat rpms are for this. The snapshots usually get better.

I would suggest emailing the gedit maintainers and working with them. :)

Have your session manager run background-properties --init. This is a
workaround until the background properties get better session managment

Thanks for not mentioning it. :) And thanks for reading the FAQ. Few
people do.

Well, dig in and start hacking!
