Bug Description

I using Oneiric with GNOME3 fallback session.
Without I doing anything I get this error.
Perhaps this problem is a duplicated report with an other bug, for example in Gedit this problem is fixed.

This crash has the same stack trace characteristics as bug #816395. However, the latter was already fixed in an earlier package version than the one in this report. This might be a regression or because the problem is in a dependent package.

Seems has been a fail (which was to fix bug #847807), instead of fixing the gsettings keys to be correct ted let the wrong one and broke the gconf ones

Ken, do you think you could fix that to Oneiric today? Without the correct key mapping the settings migration will not work and the convertion script will abort before being done converting settings
