RE: gnome session-panel & X problems

I don't have an .xsession file, or mabye I dleted it in trying to clense the
problem. I deleted all the X related hidden stuff. .gnome* and such. I tried
to get it to revert to defaults to see if that would help, but it doesn't.
Seems like gnome doesn't understand i want to exit!! Well, I thought the
problem was sound (trying to play a sound on exit and getting stuck) ..but i
got sound working and thats not the case. I've removed and reinstalled gnome
too.Hmm ..to be continued. Anyone else see this problem?

What does your .xsession file say?  You might not have panel listed as 
booting up.

< Also, another problem i'm having with X:
 	When I Log out, the window manager closes, (the borders and such
 disapear) but the system doesn't return to gdm. It sits in X till i press
 ctrl-alt-bkspc. Anyone know why this might be? I can't figure it out. >>

Why not just start an xterm and use the shutdown command?  There's not
anything you can't do in X that you can in console.  Hope this helps.
