Default gnome applications die when run as root

Hi,

after the recent upgrade to Gnome 2.30 libraries
gconf-editor or meld die of
Could not send message to GConf daemon: Process /usr/libexec/gconfd-2 received signal 6
when run as root.

Strangely, it works on a different machine which is thought to be
identically configured.

Many thanks for a hint,
Helmut.

Purely a guess, but that sounds like dbus. I'm wondering if you have
useflags like policykit or dbus set differently on the two machines?
