Re: Bug #693630: Dconf unknown method 'Change'
The idea of make a configuration file a binary file is the most serious
bug of dconf. It's bad by design and when ever possible, we should avoid
using software that needs dconf. As user use an editor that is dependent
to dconf, to edit a file with root privileges and than try to use a MUA
that's dependent to dconf, by the same user. You likely will experience
another bug by design, a privileges issue. In the future expect more
insanity caused by the GNOME/GTK think tank.
