Default GNOME 3 - Gconf Error

I am using the latest version of gnome shell (3.2.1-2) on Fedora 16
and many times a window appears with an error message saying "GConf
error: Configuration server couldn't be contacted: D-BUS error: The
GConf daemon is currently shutting down." The desktop session goes
haywire after that, the windows on the desktop screen appear broken
and their borders distort and many of the applications (like Gnome
Terminal) don't start.

Has anyone experienced something similar and found a fix for the same ?

Thanks,

Yes and no (well "not running Gnome" fixes it)

It seems to be if you log in again very rapidly after logging out. Looks
like the desktop startup/shutdown perhaps race and are not properly
managed ?

I could not correlate or pinpoint the error to anything specific
because it has been occurring randomly at random times. I am just
curious to know if this happens in the case of fresh clean
installations of Fedora 16 also because I have been upgrading my
system with each successive release since Fedora 13.

As of now, I have enabled the avahi daemon as suggested in the Red Hat
Bugzilla Bug 758129 referred to by Jatin.
