Critical because causes unrelated software in the system to misbehave.
gnome-settings-daemon is started in the usual case by gnome-session.
But there's really _nothing_ that says that this program is not to be
run by the user, and there's a situation where the user might want to
start it by himself: namely when not using gnome-sesison. In my
particular case I need this otherwise unwanted piece of software
because Epiphany will happyly ignore my preferences if
gnome-settings-daemon isn't running. For that reason I start
gnome-settings-daemon "by hand" in my .xsession. Since this thing is
now hidden somewhere in /usr/lib, my .xsession can't find it and some
programs that I use suddenly ignore the preferences I've set.
Care to give me a reason for taking gnome-settings-daemon out of the
default user's PATH?
