Question GNOME Window Manager dies after update.

After doing "urpmi.update -a" and "urpmi --auto-select", GNOME logins stop after Compiz turns on (When the background turns black and compiz kicks in). "Window Manager" is displayed at the bottom of the splash, and it just sits there until X is restarted. The funny thing is that KDE logins work fine with Compiz performing wonderfully. Anyone know how I can log in to GNOME again, preferably with compiz working?

Post New Information!

So it turns out that GNOME and compiz work after all. The problem is that it takes almost 2 minutes for the desktop to show up. There is no visible loading being done by the computer, it just all of a sudden is there. KDE still comes up within seconds. Anyone have any ideas or ways I could find out what's going on?
