I managed to fix it in my F11 VM by tweaking a config file. I'll see
if the same fix applies to the VM.

The neighbourhood shows many buddies with identical colours to me, indicating something is broken (your owner colours are used by default on icons that are not getting the correct colour information).
Is there a better server to use? I think we would just need to throw
a gconf line in the kickstart file.

Anyone know how to bake in the VirtualBox Guest Tools? Is there an
RPM I can just add in? In my experience, they have to be compiled
locally against whatever kernel you're running.

Yeah, definitely. I'll keep working on it though and hopefully these
issues can be resolved.
