Killing X server resets GNOME 3 GUI

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi guys, I was working with VirtualBox, among other applications, and accidentally used Ctrl+Alt+Backspace to kill the host X server and I immediately ran startx again, only to find that my cursor, favourites, mouse sensitivity... had all reset to their 'factory' defaults. After logging out and back in again and running startx, it was back to normal. I am using Fedora 17 64-bit in multi-user mode. Has anyone heard of this behaviour before? (HowTos)
