Already tried that. The new user has a normal window manager (metacity) and
gnome-panel.

I decided to pollute the new user with my configurations to see what would
happen. I copied my ~/.gconf, ~/.gconfd ~/.gnome2, ~/.gnome2-private, ~/.local
and ~/.nautilus folders to the new user, one at a time.

Each time I rebooted and logged in as the new user. The new user still had
metacity and gnome-panel even after I had copied all of them to the new user.

So whatever is causing it is not in the above folders.

I am currently trying to figure out how to save the state of the desktop. I
know there's a GUI someplace, I just can't find it. My plan is to reboot,
log in, start metacity, then save the state as the default to be used every
time I log in to Gnome.
