To reproduce this bug, do this: 1) Make sure Gnome is your default Window manager 2) Disable automatic start of X Window server 3) Login under any valid user ID 4) Become root using su 5) Start the X Window server by typing startx Gnome will crash or hang. It permits login as root user, but does not permit any valid user to become root prior to starting X
Why is this filed for CCK?
I'm sorry. The honest answer is I didn't know where to file it, and I thought it important enough to file somewhere. I hope you can route it to whomever should see it, and my apologies for the inconvenience.
Reassigning to mozilla.org.
Does this have anything at all to do with mozilla? If this is a gnome issue, then see bugzilla.gnome.org. -> browser general - its definately not m.o
doesn't sound like a Mozilla bug to me.
