Bug Description

Binary package hint: tomboy

version = Ubuntu 9.04 Netbook remix.

 HW = EEE 701 SD (using 16gb SD card for OS install)

Tomboy 0.14.0-0ubuntu1

Consistant Crash conditions:

1) Fresh install of Ubuntu 9.04 netbook

2) switch to classic gnome desktop

3) use Synaptic to remove tomboy package

4) reboot system.

On reboot, Gnome panels, etc do not start.

re-installing tomboy does not resolve issue.

Further testing.

Would like to re-classify this bug. As a 9.04 Netbook release issue

Problem can be re-produced by the act of Switching views to Gnome classic view and then rebooting.

Causes Gnome-panel and applications to fail on startup.

summary: - Removal of Tomboy package causes Gnome Desktop to crash on a reboot.
+ 9.04 Netbook remix - switching to 'classic view' and rebooting, causes
+ Gnome Desktop to crash.

I am having this same issue. Only I thought it was due to switching while having some apps open during the switch (pidgin and firefox) because during switch with apps open I got some odd errors. I know, newb move to just have some "odd errors" without anything specific. I figured switching back would fix the problem, but lo and behold at next boot I didn't get any panels. Now I remember removing tomboy as well.
