Don't see any replies to this yet, so if you are still having this
issue, you may want to check out the bug report at
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-source-2.6.20/+bug/112132

This was first reported in Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn, later confirmed in
Gutsy 7.10. Take a look at
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=414002&page=2
and
http://www.fak3r.com/2007/06/22/failed-to-set-xfermode-solved/
for work-arounds. I did not read all of these, but it appears to
describe exactly what you are experiencing.

good luck,
