talk to the old daemon, and will fail to load their configuration.
* fix an obvious memory error from the last release
thanks to Ionut Biru; apologies to everyone else
* 671581 - don't migrate vendor settings to the user's dconf database
* 652289 - store daemon data in XDG_RUNTIME_DIR
* 670033 - don't crash during sync if gconfd shutting down
* 664031 - D-Bus backend: Add GCONF_DEFAULT_SOURCE
gconf (3.2.5-0ubuntu2) precise; urgency=low
* Split gconf-service further into gconf-service and
