I think to remember that this is a bug in Gnome 1.0 that has 
to do with the window manager.  Anyway, I would recommend
updating to the Gnome distribution of RH6.1 (from any RH
mirror) or October Gnome from  Gnome 1.0
should actually have been called Gnome 0.9.  The new version 
seems however to be solid - especially October Gnome.
