From gconf-editor: "Duplicate buttons are not allowed"

Arrangement of buttons on the titlebar. The value should be a string,
such as "menu:minimize,maximize,spacer,close"; the colon separates the
left corner of the window from the right corner, and the button names
are comma-separated. Duplicate buttons are not allowed. Unknown button
names are silently ignored so that buttons can be added in future
metacity versions without breaking older versions. A special spacer tag
can be used to insert some space between two adjacent buttons.

WAG: it must mean that metacity isn't flexible enough to handle more
than one of the same...
