[Mageia-dev] GNOME3/GDM

I tried GDM and GNOME3 after the latest metacity update for 
registration, to see if the Alt-F4 mess and other anomalies were gone.  
The Alt-F4 mess seems to be, but there have been regressions.

GDM now crashes/restarts if you try to log into an LXDE desktop.

GNOME3 now displays the desktop links with missing characters.  The 
Applications link at the top left doesn't display at all, while for 
other strings on the desktop (e.g. the dropdown for your username, 
giving your status and links for system settings, logout, etc.) display 
with every other character (or sometimes more) blanked out, although the 
links themselves work if you can guess which one to use.

Anybody confirm ?
