Bug#245848: capplets: gnome-settings-daemon fails to start

Package: capplets
Version: 1:2.6.1-1
Severity: important
Tags: experimental

I'm running GNOME 2.6 from experimental. Every time I try to start
GNOME, I get a message that gnome-settings-daemon failed to start
because it restarted too many times. Then I get a desktop without my
theme loaded.

I don't seem to have a binary named 'gnome-settings-daemon', though
there is one named 'gnome-settings-daemon.real'. If I run that, it works
fine, and loads my desktop theme and most of my preferences. (It does
not load my number of workspaces, and Nautilus' icons are all "blank
sheets of paper" no matter what I do).

This same effect happens if I go to Applications > Desktop Preferences >

Symlinking /usr/bin/gnome-settings-daemon.real to
/usr/bin/gnome-settings-daemon did not solve the problem.
