gnome-control-center: Could not find directory of control panels

Description of problem:
When trying to run "gnome-control-center" under the latest Fedora's
development snapshot, I get the following error:
** (gnome-control-center:2718): WARNING **: Could not find directory
of control panels [preferences:///]
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

2. Try running "gnome-control-center" (I did from within a KDE
gnome-control-center fails with an error message.
gnome-control-center should run with no errors.
I will attach an strace of gnome-control-center. It seems there is
some kind of interaction problems between gnome-control-center and
the latest gnome-vfs2-2.5.5-3 package.
My /etc/gnome-vfs-2.0/vfolders directory is empty, and it seems this
is what is causing gnome-control-center to fail.
Also, this breaks other applications functionality. For example,
clicking on a link on Evolution's summary page, displays the
(evolution:2732): evolution-mail-WARNING **: gnome_url_show: There
was an error launching the default action command associated with

strace of gnome-control-center
This has been fixed in gnome-vfs2-2.5.6-1 from RawHide.
