Description of problem:
Whenever I login to Gnome, I get "Whoops, something happened" screen. After analyzing journalctl (and looking at my $HOME) I found two coredumps from gnome-settings-daemon (see attached). When downgrading g-s-d to gnome-settings-daemon-3.8.4-1.el7 everything works.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.login to Gnome

Actual results:
"Whoops, something happened" screen, restart of gnome-session (and everything repeats endlessly).

Expected results:
Working gnome session

looking into it.
Comment 4 Ray Strode [halfline] 2013-08-22 10:15:12 EDT
can you attach your /root/anaconda-ks.cfg file and the output of rpm -qa?

can you run

 valgrind /usr/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon --replace --debug >& valgrind-and-debug.log

and then attach that?

hmm for some reason it's trying to load the softoken (see Activating driver 'NSS Internal Crypto Services') which doesn't have a dllName associated with it.  It shouldn't be trying to use that, so I need to figure out why it's tryin in the first place.

I don't think I should have needinfo here.
