Gnome Game Iagno Broken After "Save Session" Logout

After upgrading to KDE 4.8.3, Kmix would launch automatically at login, which is really annoying. So I closed all my programs, closed Kmix, saved the session and logged out. Logged back in and Kmix stayed closed. But ever since I saved that session the Gnome game "Iagno" is broken. It has lost the menubar on the top so it can't be configured. The grid disappears once I make the first click, and the game image itself disappears wherever another element has overlapped it.

I uninstalled and reinstalled gnome-games, gnome-games-devel, and gnome-games-extra-data. Even tried it without the extra-data and it's still broken.

The other gnome-games are OK.

Iagno works fine in the /home/guest account, so something broke in my /home account. I've compared files between the two /home accounts and they seem identical: /.gnome, /.gnome2, /.gconf, ... I don't know where else to look.

FWIW, this is the iagno file at "///home/*/.gnome2/accels/iagno" (identical in both /home directories):

; iagno GtkAccelMap rc-file         -*- scheme -*-
; this file is an automated accelerator map dump
; (gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/group/PlayerList" "<Primary>l")
; (gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/group/UndoMove" "<Primary>z")
; (gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/group/Contents" "F1")
; (gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/group/NewNetworkGame" "<Primary>g")
; (gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/group/NewGame" "<Primary>n")
; (gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/group/Preferences" "")
; (gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/group/GameMenu" "")
; (gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/group/LeaveNetworkGame" "<Primary>e")
; (gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/group/Quit" "<Primary>q")
; (gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/group/About" "")
; (gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/group/SettingsMenu" "")
; (gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/group/HelpMenu" "")
I've attached two screenshots. One is a normal game from the "guest" account, the other is a broken game from my account. In the broken screenshot, the blank gray area is where KSnapshot overlapped the game. Eventually the entire game goes blank. If I doubleclick the top of the window to shade it, when I open it again the entire game is blank.

What could be causing this and how do I fix it?
