    This sounds very much like a problem I had.  Are you running
Enlightenment?  I was using Gnome version 1.0.4? and Enlightenment 0.16.  I
solved the problem be upgrading Gnome to the current version, 1.0.53?  And
then the problem went away.

    I had Redhat start up X at startup so I haven't seem the error messages
you posted, so it might be a different problem.  But the slow start up and
the "log-out" not working are the same.

    Everything has worked great since then.
