The only 3rd party tools that are *installed* on the systems are the
following RPMs from the RPMforge repo:
None of these have actively running processes (ie.e, daemons) that
could interfere with ongoing Gnome activity. I do have a couple of
3rd party tools that are installed on an automounted NFS share, but
again, these are just user applications like an IDE and a source
control management system that should be fairly self contained and
not affect the Gnome Terminal process, Gnome applets, etc.

OK, I will look into this.

The only Gnome applets in use are the default ones: Show Desktop,
Window List, and Workspace switcher. I don't even have the yum-
updatesd RPM installed.
I will try to raise these issues on a Gnome mailing list or forum to
see if anyone has any useful insights.
