That could be regression in gconftool-2. Many years ago we've had to SIGHUP
gconfd-2 at the end of the scriptlets. Later on, a "reload" patch applied to
gconftool has made that unnecessary:
http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/gitweb/?p=GConf2.git;a=tree;h=e3e569b49588b8c9d1e41081470 b28fbf6641ed8;hb=58752f42394a5d97d30a3ac65f42db1ea a7daf46
That patch has been dropped with the upgrade from GConf 2.32.x to 3.1.3 in 2011.
It has not been merged either, possibly because the code uses a different method
to signal the daemon.
What I can reproduce with F-16 is that installing the package does not make
available the schemas unless I SIGHUP gconfd-2 manually (or restart it).
