Hi Nicolai - thanks for your reply. Here is the GSD error message:

I also get an info message after logging in which had not appeared before the latest update now does not seem to want to go away:
Some things, such as themes, sounds, or background settings

The last error message was:

application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy
blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
GNOME will still try to restart the Settings Daemon next time you
Before I last restarted I entered:
New Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) configuration
presets have been added. Please execute the asoundconf(1)
set-default-card macro in a Terminal now to refresh your user's
configuration presets. You may accomplish this task by executing
the following command in a Terminal: asoundconf set-default-
But the message still appears (its definitely the right card)
asoundconf set-default-card Intel
Icons-wise all are showing as Gnome defaults (see attached screenshot). However as you can see from the terminal the mac4lin window borders are retained. In applications all icons, buttons and window themes are Gnome defaults except for the window borders. This seems to be the case for all applications (even Firefox which has its own M4L icon set).
Right everything just kicked in again with m4l icons including apps (see second screenshot).
Also everything is v slow before the icons kick in and the taskbar takes literally a minute or more to respond. After the icons come back its still a bit sluggish but not as bad.
