Very, very strange. I've just shut down the computer and started gnome
again and have no problems.Now I had put nautilus in my start up
programs with a priority of 50. Could this be the cause of the problem?
I.e. if nautilus is drawing the desk-top (which it failed to draw the
first time) does it not like a second call to nautilus to get my home
directory up and running at the start of a session?
