You do sound a bit mysterious here :).
Apparently you discovered something, but don't tell what it is. Kudos for
capturing attention, but don't expect a fix for anything soon...

I put together a script to completely erase gnome from this system and for

Did your script also delete pacman's cache? Otherwise it would have been

Okay, that's a sudden twist. The message starts with the subject of a Gnome
problem, continues on a removal script and ends with a question on a
sudo/xorg question.

With a little work, it could probably become a great forum or blogpost, but

In this case, I still don't know where the problem is, other then sudo or
xorg crashing. But perhaps it's just me...?
