Jim:

Thanks for the response.  I tried metacity --replace and when I press 
<ENTER> the window headers immediately appear.  metacity does nothing 
for a few minutes and then prints;

[root localhost knute]# metacity --replace
Window manager warning: Invalid WM_TRANSIENT_FOR window 0x2600007 
specified for 0x2600023 (Input).
Window manager warning: Invalid WM_TRANSIENT_FOR window 0x2600007 
specified for 0x2600023 (Input).
Window manager warning: Invalid WM_TRANSIENT_FOR window 0x2600007 
specified for 0x2600023 (Input).
Window manager warning: Invalid WM_TRANSIENT_FOR window 0x2600007 
specified for 0x2600023 (Input).

and then nothing.  It does not return to the prompt.  If I kill 
metacity the window headers immediately disappear.

Anything else I can try?  Why would it work fine for root but not me?

Thanks,
