gnome splash screen hangs

This is a minor irriation but I would like to resolve it. When I log into gnome, the splash screen just sits there, if I click on it, it will go away. It does this on four different boxes. I created a new user on one box and it goes away like it should. I tried removing .gconf and .gnome in an attempt to purge config files but it made no difference.
Has anyone seen this or have a fix for it?
I will keep looking in the meantime.

Re: gnome splash screen hangs

Do you have your "lo" device up with address 127.0.0.1? This happened to me when I forgot to put the network rc script in the DAEMONS array in /etc/rc.conf.
What happens is that gnome-settings-daemon starts looking for fam via portmap. Portmap should listen on 127.0.0.1, so it looks there. If the lo interface is down, this lookup takes forever.

yup, lo is up. I use cups now and then so I would have noticed that. Good call though, cuz I have seen issues with that long ago on a different box.
