RE: Is there a way to get out of gmc hangs?

If your using Linux I suggest your press CTRL-F2 (or F3,F4,F5,F6) this
will switch you to another virtual console. From there log in
do a "ps -ef | grep gmc" and kill gmc. This might not be enough though
because I doubt that gmc can lockup all of gnome. Ussually this
means the window manger or the X server has crashed or hung. So
you'll probably have to kill one of those too. To get back to your
original console press CTRL-F1

If somehow this is the fault of gmc I wouldn't expect it to be fixed
because gmc will be replaced with Nautilist in gnome 2.0. Since
its completely different its doubtful it would have the same problem.
