Attempts by a single user to launch a second application instance of a common window manager object (usually a full desktop) may result in an error from the window manager and a failed launch. It will not matter from which application server the first or the second launch attempt originates.
A demonstration of this behavior with Gnome Desktop, results in the following message:
There was an error starting the GNOME Settings Daemon.
Some things, such as themes, sounds, or background settings may not work correctly.
The last error message was:
Launch helper exited with unknown return code 1
Gnome will try to restart the Settings Daemon next time you log in.
