Default failure of gnome-settings-daemon

Gnome-light became stable recently on x86 and I have now upgraded to
2.24.

Unfortunately gnome-settings-daemon fails (silently).
This prevents my normal login. Wnen using the gnome failsafe login,
I can get in and work, but whenever I try
system>preferences>appearance
I get a dialog box saying that gnome-settings-setting cannot be started.

Although I can get to the appearance dialog, various fonts are too big
and can't be changed.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
thanks,
allan
