Gnome 2.14 crashes in Etch after upgrade

I dist-upgraded Etch (Testing) today. Attempting to open a Gnome session caused Gnome to abort and made other virtual terminals unusable (they all had a screen with a coloured pattern and no prompt or text). This was true for any existing user with a gnome configuration. Newly-created users did not have this problem.

I can solve the problem by deleting each user's ~/.gconf file (mv .gconf .gconf.old). Each user must then login and rebuild their preferences (eg theme, panel applets etc) from scratch. Is there an easier way?
