I can confirm that.

I just installed a fresh edgy knot-3. When logging in for the first time, everything is good. When I log out and log in again, I get this message:

"There was an error starting the GNOME Settings Daemon.

Some things, such as themes, sounds, or background settings may not work correctly.

The last error message was:

Process /usr/lib/control-center/gnome-settings-daemon exited with status 1

GNOME will still try to restart the Settings Daemon next time you log in."

See screenshot.

I can reproduce it always... whenever I log in for the second time without rebooting, I have no settings daemon. Please tell me how to further debug this (don't really know what to attach strace to).
