This is crashing with GSettings failing to find the 'org.gnome.desktop.lockdown' schema.

Do you have gsettings-desktop-schemas or gnome-screensaver installed?

Charles: I'm sorry, I don't really remember if I removed those packages — maybe I did by accident. Since I reported this problem I've upgraded to Trusty and never faced it again.
