No, those are the same *symptom*, but probably different problems.
On my rawhide boxes, when gnome-session starts it gets an X Window
The program 'gnome-session' received an X Window System error. This
probably reflects a bug in the program. The error was 'BadWindow
(invalid Window parameter)'.
(Details: serial 22 error_code 3 request_code 2 minor_code 0)
(that's from my .xsession-errors file)
Doesn't have anything to do with pressing a key. I'll file (or find)
about this shortly.
By the way - booting into runlevel 3 and running 'startx' works fine.
Still trying to figure out the cause of this one..
