Additional info:

Non-gnome apps work fine.  Xterm works.

Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2003-06-05 18:09:37 UTC
See http://www.gnome.org/projects/gconf/ for the workarounds (enable TCP 
CORBA, or try GCONF_LOCAL_LOCKS)

The larger fix is in the works, but I'm not going to keep the bug open for that, 
as it's a big architectural change and I won't forget to work on it. ;-)
See my paper at www.linuxsymposium.org 2002 proceedings for the larger
architectural fix plan.
