I have been using Ubuntu 18.04 with Gnome Flashback with Compiz for
about a month without issue. I performed normal updates on either 3/4 or
3/5 and now get a login loop using either Metacity or Compiz. When I try
to login I just get kicked right back to the login screen.

In an attempt to trouble shoot, I did a fresh install or Bionic without
updating and only installed Gnome Flashback and everything was fine. I
was able to login no issue. I then performed a normal update and this
broke the login in using Gnome Flashback. Normal Gnome login is working
with no issues. I did notice that there were Gnome packages updated with
the latest updates although not sure which ones.

I am not sure what in the updates caused the issue. I do not see any
issues being raised in .xsession-errors. Permissions on .XAuthority
.ICEauthority are fine. I also tried deleting the .cache and .config
directories with no change.

If there is something else I can provide to further aid in debug please
let me know.
