A few days ago the gnome panel and nautilus lost significant
functionality. I'm running AMD64 debian. When I log in, the gnome pane
appears, but does not become populated with icons. It blinks several
times and then I get a variety of similar behaviors. Either:
1. I get a message the nautilus has died and the gnome-panel has died
2. I get a message the the gnome-settings-daemon has tried to start too
After I click close on each of the buttons, the panel does become
populated with icons, but I have no control over the theme.
I have started filing a bug report with gnome, but the behavior on crash
is complicated enough that I have had to start over a couple of times.
I'm wondering whether Debian plays a role.
