Hmm, in that case, I'm pretty stumped. To be honest I want to ultimately
replace the gconf dep for paprefs... I did make a start on a
module-loader that acted as a fancy replacement for loading modules but
rather than use gconf externally, it just used our build in storage and
made editing of the modules available via a protocol extension.

If I complete this work, it'll solve your problem but by the same token
it's not a solution for now.

I can't honestly say what the problem is here. I'm guessing it is in
some way related to some kind of main loop integration but I really
don't know the gconf stuff (or the purpose of the helper) well enough to
comment with any more detail :(
