Description of problem:
I get an error dialog window about gnome-settings-daemon every login. If I run
ps I see gnome-settings-daemon running. If I kill it and restart it in a
terminal window it seems to start fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set desktop to Gnome2
2. Login to X
Actual Results: Error Dialog
Expected Results: No error dialog
Limbo beta2, started after installing the long list of updates via up2date
Should be fixed in latest gnome-session which doesn't have the settings daemon
in default.session, if you have settings daemon in ~/.gnome2/session you may
need to remove it (or use session control panel)
gnome-session 2.0.4 doesn't fix this problem and gnome-setting-daemon is no
where to be seaon in ~/.gnome2/session.
I got the same error message box, after running up2date, when I restarted GNOME.
The reason I restarted GNOME was because the up2date process made me lose sound.
Restarting GNOME didn't help, but rebooting with the new kernel that up2date
installed seem to work. (kernel2.4.18-7.93)
I have rebooted multiple times and I am using a custom compile of 2.4.18-7.93
Havoc, I'm still seeing this warning on first login after installation
(therefore no .gnome2/session file at all) with gnome-session-2.0.5-1. Have the
machine here at the desk if you're interested.

Finally got this fixed by installing 1.0.3 of bonobo-activation

Why then does the problem go away after a reboot? This seems to be
more of a problem with NFS locks than with gnome-session.
