After I log into unity-2d i see gnome panel and some other services working along side with unity services and I cannot get rid of these services.

Besides, unity panel gets locked sometimes and i have to logout and login. Why?

Does this still happen? This was an old problem early in the alphas. – Jorge Castro Apr 14 '11 at 2:48

May be this can fix,

get your terminal and type this: "killall unity"

and remove unity in the startup services or whatever its called.
