gnome settings lost

Jochen Bartl
Hi list.

I lost my gnome configuration after a system crash. My system freezed
after an unsuccessful suspend to ram, so I had to power it off.

After restarting my system I recognised that my entire gnome
configuration was lost. I experienced the same problem some weeks ago
during the update from gnome 2.10 to 2.12. Thank god I have a backup of
my $HOME/.gconf/%gconf-tree.xml ;-) I have deleted
$HOME/.gconfd/saved_state, restored %gconf-tree.xml from my backup und
everything is ok for now.

Maybe someone has a clue why I lost the gnome configuration. I turned
the debug mode (kill -USR1) for gconfd on, after I recognised the
problem. Here is the gconfd logfile:
