I noticed this weird behaviour yesterday after the last update (not sure if it's really related, but I didn't notice this before).
When I do a fresh start and log in - all the gnome related processes are DOUBLED in the memory
Of course it causes weird errors, applet hanging or crashes, very sensible slowness while booting and operating, etc, etc.
Basically I have 2 gnome-session
loaded at once - one as a child process of gdm-binary
and another separate one. Both sessions have all the child process loaded, so I turned out to have 2 Nautilus, 2 Metacity, 2 Gnome-panel, 8 python processes and all the set of applets are also doubled.
Will post the process listings here later today.
I tried kill the processes, reboot (partially and completely), different ways to login and start X - nothing helped. I'm shot
