crap. ok, you're right. i reverted to old xfdesktop, but the problem
was gone. so i killed gconfd, and gnome-terminal crashed on startup.
killed it again, and gedit froze and went zombie.
updated back to latest xfdesktop, and tried again, same procedure. no
crashes, but gedit and gnome-terminal are both hanging if gconfd is not
running already. however, if gconfd _is_ running, the apps start just
fine, which _is_ an improvement from before. however, this may just be
due to the gnome 2.6 upgrade, i'm not sure.
i'm not really sure what to do at this point. i can go ahead and do a
full rewrite of src/backdrop.c, but i'm not sure if that will do the
trick. guess i'll give that a try.
/me is sad
