Maybe some problem with the gnome session setup?

In RH8 is something called gconfd, which keeps your settings like window
focus policy, colors, desktop icons, running programs and so on.
I don't know, how it is in RH7.2
But there must be sth, which takes care of these things. If you have
local users, their settings are usually saved in their home-drive.
If you log in with an account, whose home-drive does not exist, how
should the setting be loaded?
Failsafe works, because the defaults are used.

Just my explanation
