Perhaps I'm missing something (please fill me in if I am), but there
does not seem to be anything to edit in:

It does appear correct that gconf-editor can change these (well, or
override them at least, I didn't run it as root), but why would an admin
ever want to?

Sorry, I did not realize this could all be fixed in one place. I suppose
that is one of many reasons to ask on -devel before mass bug filings.
