I encounter some strange things under gnome-shell right now. I tried to encircle the issue a litl bit but so far without much success.
1) fully - updated (except kernel + header + tm_smapi) due to kernel regression under sandy bridge --> https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=150743 running 3.5.6
2) running vmplayer 5.0.1 host=arch-linux guest=12.04 ubunutu and win7
3) gnome-shell + gdm + systemd (still in mixed mode) but rc.d array is empty!
4) the encounter is random. and it started with a, than i realised b happens at the same time and c as well, but a was the start encounter.
a) i cant switch to any tty with ALT+CTRL+F[2-7]
b) unlocking any settings in gnome-shell is greyed out
c) shutingdown the system is requiring the user PWD
- due to (a) i expected the Video driver to be the issue so i switched off any 3D settings in vmware, no gain
- (b) was leading me to believe it might be a different issue with a dead service unit from systemd. so i took a snapshot of working (see snip at the end)
- (c) was checking my polkit settings but they all seem fine.
So my question. what could cause all three things to fail. loging out and relogin solves the issue, but i cant shutdown te VM's all the time :-)
ALT-TRL-F1 PLUS greyed out settings PLUS password asking?
it seems i have some authoritative issue but i cant figure out where it should come from as the behavior is random. and not appearing specifically during any action...
2 days might not getting any error than 5 times in 30 minutes.
