I didn't test for that, to tell you the truth I'm not a huge Gnome fan, 
so I really only give it a basic look-over and try to ensure its running 
well enough to get into, use and logout :)

What I could really use is somebody experienced with Gnome, who wants to 
use it as their primary desktop to do some testing, find bugs, and 
submit patches to our module for building the PBI. (This would be a good 
way to get a commit bit as well). With a bit of work, it should be 
possible to make the Gnome PBI work awesome, and be fully-tweaked & 
tuned to what a power gnome user would want.
