I'm afraid I still have no idea on how to reproduce this bug, despite
using metacity a lot. Furthermore, the backtrace you sent us isn't
really usable. There is a possibility that retrying with libglib2.0-dbg
installed gives better results. As it looks like some IO deadlock
between the two processes, we also need the same trace from
metacity-dialog at the same time; you can attach to its PID with "gdb

If you can describe precisely a way to reproduce this, e.g. with totem,
that would also be very nice.
