Description of problem:
libdconfsettings.so is segfaulting when gcm-apply, gcm-preferences, or evince call it.  This may be affecting other applications as well.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Update to gnome-color-manager-2.30.1-2.fc13.x86_64 which dep installs dconf-0.3.1-2.fc14.x86_64
2.Try to run System > Preferences > Color Profiles or Document Viewer (evince)
Actual results:
libdconfsettings segfaults and the application exits

Expected results:
The application should run.

Comment 1 Gene Snider 2010-06-05 18:55:07 EDT
Oops, Step 1 should read, "Update from gnome-color-manager-2.30.1-2.fc13.x86_64 to gnome-color-manager-2.31.2-4.fc14.x86_64."  Updating to the fc14 package dep installs dconf.

Sorry about that,
