Severity: important

With the latest GLib changes [1], if an app reads some data from
GSettings before connecting there, it actually won't receive any
notifications from GSettings afterwards.

The upstream pull request [2] fixes the issue for mate-desktop,
making it connect to GSettings before reading the data.
