GNOME can work well in VMWare but cannot work in real machine

hi,
Er... I tried but I still dont know how to build gnome-session with debug symbol... I only can type in 'make config' in the folder of gnome-panel.
I will give you the backtrack later but accorading to my analysis, I think this is a problem related to dbus or polkit. Because it looks that most of the programs which depand on dbus have problems. For example, not only gnome-panl but also gnome-keyring-daemon and other applications also show this message in console.
And also, when I click on a non-FreeBSD partition, no window would shown. If I wait for more than 5min it would show a error message window read 'No Response'(I cannot remember the exact mesage but I know its a very long error message with hal no response).

Can you rebuild gnome-panel and gnome-session with debugging symbols,
then attach gdb while gnome-panel is "hung?"  Once attached, run "bt" to
get a backtrace.  That may help isolate the problem.
