No, but that's a quite old bugs with gconf that happens for all apps
using gconf with a schema ... not sure of the best way to mention it but
we are definitively working on it. I've talked some days ago with the
dh_gconf maintainer about killing gconfd-2 in postinst script to force
the new key loading.

Yes. I'm rebuilding rhythmbox to solve #250433, if you are ok with that
I'll include your note in the NEWS file.

BTW as said before this problem happens for much of gnome apps and we
are working to find a global solution.

Oh yes, feel free to do it, but I think that's already in bugzilla.
Hopefully it will be fixed in Gnome2.8.

I'm not using esd but I'll have a look on this.

PS: sorry to have been nervous in the previous mail, but mailing
-release for this problem, which is mostly due to a gconf old problem,
to say that gnome2.6 is not ready is not really nice ...
