Problem with gnome desktop

Hi the list,
I encounter a problem while using openbox in replacement to metacity
(gnome 2.10): my gnome desktop isn't always displayed correctly.
Sometimes the desktop is perfectly displayed (one can see icons, etc.)
and functionnal, but repeatedly (at some particular points, always while
showing/hiding/displaying/iconifying windows), the desktop disappears
and is then shown as if it was a kind of gray window with a vertical
scrolling bar -- a screenshot is available here:
I can't figure out what causes this problem, but when it arises, I
noticed that if I create/close one or more windows, it turns out to
disappear -- but it rapidly reappears while creating/deleting some other
Does anyone have an idea about what could be the reason for this bug ??
Note: I'm using a gentoo linux on an amd64 and I don't encounter the
same bug on other gentoo computers (running in 32 bits). I neither
encounter the bug while using metacity.
Thanks in advance for your help,
