I updated the system and then rebooted. Metacity still gave the same 
error and would not load with enforcing=0 removed from the kernel. 
Compiz has the same failure.
I then relabeled the system with 'touch /.autorelabel' and rebooted. 
Metacity still would not start with selinux in enforcing. I am using the 
radeon driver for X.

kernel 2.6.17-1.2439.fc6

I believe that you are able to get metacity to load without problems. I 
am curious as to what is actually causing the problem for some, since it 
is not universal.

Would the driver for radeon (ati) be causing this error? Metacity code? 
Mesa-libGL? A combination of these or something else?

I still need to set SELinux to permissive as of this message date.

Thanks for the feedback.
