Rawhide is annoying me!

I'm having two problems on two different boxes, both running rawhide.

Problem 1 (my main box) - whoever decided to remove the default
applications thing from the menu, please put it back. I can understand
the rational, but it currently means that on firing up my desktop, I
don't have nautilus running as soon as I log in which is an absolute
pain. I have to configure my sound every time to use the soundblaster
rather than the on board card and it's generally just annoying.

Is there a way that I can set the start up applications now?

Problem 2 (laptop). Gnome is dead. I can use KDE for my desktop but
gnome, irrespective of the user, gives me a blue stripy screen and
that's it. I've tried creating a new user in case it was my settings,
but nope, blue stripy screen. I am not sure if it's related to gnome-do
(I installed it, didn't like it, yum removed it) removing something it
shouldn't have, but it does mean my laptop, unless using KDE, is no use.

Any help on fixing these issues, please let me know - they're both
driving me mad!!!!!!
Vertraue mir, ich weiss, was ich mache...
