Before we blast GNOME for it's supposed shortcomings, it should be
pointed out that the KDE rpms at SuSE's LinuKS site are not up to
date either. They too produce problems. Perhaps the packagers are
having terrific difficulty making the RPM's. In any event I do not
think it is a GNOME problem exclusively. I also have a suspicion that
the nVIDIA drivers, whether they be nv or from nVIDIA, play a role in
these problems. Just my $0.02.
