Default Old Gnome - New Gnome

It seems that if you have a common home directory that you reuse from
fedora version to fedora version, you cannot automatically go into the
gnome shell in F15 Alpha gnome 3. I have a home directory that has been
around since about Fedora 6. I don't know what all you have to
eliminate--I just cleared out all gconf* gnome* gtk* metacity folders
and now Fedora 15 RC2 goes into the shell when logging on to the
desktop. Before I had to issue a gnome-shell --replace in a terminal.

I wonder what other problems reusing was/is causing?

This is probably just
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=679326 , and you don't hit
it with a clean configuration because less stuff is happening at startup
so gnome-session-is-accelerated manages to complete in time.
