I have not changed anything X-related, but there is some kind of
managed updating system that could have. I'm running on Ubuntu
10.04 using whatever the stock window manager is for Gnome.
If that is still Metacity, I'm not surprised you had problems.
Metacity assumes that applications will follow a very narrow
interpretation of the ICCCM, and gets quite confused if they don't. I
suppose I can't entirely blame them since these conventions are
embedded in either the GNOME libraries or perhaps even lower-level in
GTK+ itself, but they're undocumented.
Maybe if I get some time I'll set up Xen or KVM somewhere so I can
easily install other OSes.
