Ticket #16755 (closed defect: fixed)
gnucash-2.2.7_2 preferences cannot be accessed/modified: possibly related to orbit2-2.14.16_0, gconf-2.24.0_0 or dbus-1.2.3_0?

|Port:||gnucash orbit2 gconf dbus|
Ran port updates (PPC): gnucash from 2.2.5_0 to 2.2.7_1; gconf from 2.22.0_0 to 2.24.0_0; orbit2 from 2.14.12_0 to 2.14.16_0; dbus from 1.1.20_1 to 1.2.3_0.
Got the following errors, confirmed by two other users; was told it was probably a ORBit/GConf problem, or possibly dbus.
Two error windows every time gnucash is launched. One says: "The configuration data used to specify default values for GnuCash cannot be found in the default system locations. Without this data GnuCash will still operate properly but it may require some extra time to setup. Do you wish to setup the configuration data?"
The other says: "An error occurred while loading or saving configuration information for gnucash. Some of your configuration settings may not work properly."
When I click "Details" on the second window, it says: "Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See http://www.gnome.org/projects/gconf/ for information. (Details - 1: Failed to get connection to session: dbus-launch failed to autolaunch D-Bus session: Autolaunch requested, but X11 support not compiled in."
Gnucash mostly works fine otherwise, but preferences cannot be saved. That is, you can change them and click OK, but they don't actually do anything. Also, other "on-the-fly" preferences don't stick, such as the confirmation window when changing the reconciliation state of transactions. When I select, "don't warn me again", this is not remembered, and the windows will still pop up.
Gnucash is also taking a ridiculous amount of CPU power, and is extremely slow, possibly related to locked files?
