Please file a bug against "gconftool-2" using "reportbug" so that the
maintainers can see exactly what set of shared library versions
gconftool-2 is linked against on your particular system. "reportbug"
will gather that list automatically, and the bug tracking system will
create a ticket thread on which to discuss this particular problem. Be
sure to read the bug headers it returns on starting, to see if the
problem has already been reported.
I had a similar problem a while back with one of the tools run by Gnome
postinst scripts, and it turned out to be caused by an old version of
libxml2. After upgrading that to a newer release, the problem went
away. If you try this, please don't do it until after you generate the
bug report, so they can see what version triggered the bug; in case
that's what it is. It may need version dependencies tightened up.
