Re: gconfd-2 does not exit when a user log out, breaks unmountinghome

I think the simple solution is to exec "gconftool-2 --shutdown" as the last thing gnome-session does before exiting, or perhaps even in the X scripts in xinitrc. If you wrote and tested a patch along those lines it'd be useful.

Another possible solution is to have an X server monitor process for
gconfd; basically gconfd would fork/exec a tiny little program that
simply connects to the X server and sits there, exiting when it loses
the X connection. gconfd would then exit when this program exits. This
is conceivably a more robust approach and still pretty easy to
implement.

Couldn't you also connect gconfd2 to the session manager? That would be more portable to systems which don't use X11, no?
