    Minimize logs me out - why?

    Chaps,

    Odd one this, and I have done a bit of a search and found nothing helpful, so I suspect it may not be a common problem.

    I'm running 9.10 Karmic on an X31 Thinkpad, and whenever I try to minimize (minimise for any fellow brits reading!) a window, it logs me out. I can log back in again fine, but when I try to minimize another window - I'm logged out again. It doesn't take me to a "Do you want to logout?" screen, it just logs me out. The screen goes black for a couple of seconds, and I am shown the login screen.

    It happens with all windows. Firefox, Nautilus, Open Office Applications.

    Anyone have any ideas? Thanks, in advance, for any help.

    Has it always done this, or is it recent?

    If it is recent, when did you first start noticing it? Did you do anything like an update or install a program from apt or source, etc?

    OK, quick update ...

    I have just (literally just!) tried an update, and been given this error message:

    "An error occurred. The following details are provided:

    W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/ricotz/test...cotz1_i386.deb
    404 Not Found"

    Is this relevant?

    Satoru-san,

    Thanks for your reply.

    It is recent. Within the last couple of days. Funnily enough, I was playing around the Cairo-Dock on the machine in question, and it may have started just after removing Cairo-Dock.

    Now you have asked, I am wondering whether this is relevant.

    Never played around with cario dock, but that seems to be the problem, you could look it up on google or submit a bug.

    As far as the other one, that is from the testing ppa repository. I am not sure why updating would pull from that repo. Are you trying to run unstable?

    I've had a gander on Google and not found anything, which slightly concerns me. Makes me wonder whether it is something I have done wrong (as opposed to it being a known issue.)

    Ummm, I'm not quite sure what you mean by "Run Unstable". I'm not doing anything adventurous, and don't have any "unsupported" repositories (I don't think ... ) Does that answer the question?

    Open the synaptic package manager and go to the second tab, "other software", I think, under
    preferences> software sources
    and see what is selected there. It looks like you have a ppa source enabled for whatever reason. If you don't know what it is good for, maybe it would be just as well to disable it.
