Lucid update ties gtk2-module-rgba to ubuntu-desktop. Please help!

I recently updated my Lucid Lynx installation with some new updates, and here's what happened:

I go to launch Firefox, Gedit,, Geany, and Kate, among other things, and Metacity crashes. It crashes when I open all these apps.

Next, I try to remove gtk2-module-rgba (what is causing the Metacity crashes), and APT wants to remove ubuntu-desktop for dependencies! Of course, I had to cancel the removal. I now see that /etc/profile.d/ has, Gedit, Geany, Firefox, and various other apps in it already, including Metacity (at the very end). Yet Metacity is still crashing! Why?!

For those of you who want to know my hardware: I have an Acer Aspire One AOA110-1545.

ubuntu-desktop is there only because it depends on all such packages. You could safely remove it if no other package is to be uninstalled.
