emacs vs. dconf

Whatever is doing this should at least first check for a dconf

Doesn't happen with -nw.

# aptitude purge dconf
# su - nobody
No directory, logging in with HOME=/
nobody@jidanni2:/$ emacs -Q

** (emacs:3049): CRITICAL **: unable to create '/nonexistent/.cache/dconf'; dconf will not work properly.
nobody@jidanni2:/$ apt-cache policy emacs-snapshot
  Installed: 2:20120208-1
  Candidate: 2:20120208-1
  Version table:

        500 http://emacs.naquadah.org/ unstable/ Packages

Same with
# su -
# emacs -Q

# strace emacs -Q > /tmp/f 2>&1 #doesn't help find the culprit, with
surely is some X windows component.
