I just incrementally updated between alpha-2 (when RB worked) and alpha-3 (when it did not) and tracked the breakage down to d-conf.

dconf-gsettings-backend 0.12.1-2: edit→preferences functions correctly.
dconf-gsettings-backend 0.13.4-0ubunu1: crash as in this bug.

Adding a d-conf task accordingly.
