ok, so here is a strange problem that happens from time to time after i log in.
so after gnome starts up, suppose i click on firefox or terminal or IM or whatever other app, the cursor shows busy for few seconds and then nothing happens.
if i continue to click on other progrmas, still nothing happens.
any ideas? Its frustrating b/c my current soln is to log out and log back in, but it used to work quite fine.
so any thoughts as to why gnome is not responding after i click to start programs?
