I have already noted this myself :) It was a pain at GUADEC, the
Gnome conference, too: the hacking room ended up with a series
of "guadec1", "guadec2", "guadec3" accounts, one per terminal, 
rather than a nice simple "guadec" and a dozen terminals (all
attached to the same box). 

Sun have patches to make it work (or work better; not sure which), 
but they're not upstream. There was a long thread on the
desktop-devel mailing list about this very recently; and I
gather Gnome bug 94049 is muddled up with it too, along with
its duplicates.

(the thread, which ended up in two places in the archive. Silly 
subject line, yes)

I have just realised that Mark, who mentioned this bug, is
probably on this list. I should have left it to him to explain :) 

But the answer is apparently to "fix gnome-settings-daemon".
