Hello, i have a big problem, gconfd doesn't recognise my previous gconf values. Desktop background, nautilus preferences...
As a consecuence i've lost all my evolution email settings, and when I start evolution, it asks for new configuration.
I've checked that gconf doesn't have proper values with gconf-editor
This occurs since a bad shutdown, but i'm not sure if this is the reason or the new upload to unstable. I've copied ~/.evolution and ~/.gconf/apps/evolution to a new user, with identical results. Then i did the same to another computer still with gnome
2.10, and evolution works ok.
Just in case some file were broken in my system after the shutdown, i did cd /var/cache/apt/archives dpkg -i *.deb
but this didn't solve the problem and made me think that the problem is with some debian package, I also have this problem (#347528), but i don't know if it's related or not.

On second thought, this should have worked nevertheless.

Still, I'd like to know what happens if:
1. you remove the %gconf-tree.xml file and log in again;
2. you remove the %gconf-tree.xml file, create an empty %gconf.xml and
log in again.
In both cases, are you asked for migration? Do you get your settings

I did the second one, as you told me in your previous email, i was asked
