As a workaround, update to mate-desktop-common >= 1.8, i.e. the version
from sid.

So the smaller bug here is a missing version dependency between the two.

I'd say a larger bug is that such a failure mode exists - the actual
error printed by mate-settings-daemon is

	(mate-settings-daemon:27084): GLib-GIO-ERROR **: Settings schema 'org.mate.peripherals-mouse' does not contain a key named 'middle-button-enabled'

which doesn't really seem to be worth making as much fuss as crashing to
