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 issue was partially fixed for Marco (see [2]), but it turned out
that the keybindings change notifications still didn't work. It was
caused by using different instances of GSettings for listening to
the changes and reading the values.

The upstream pull request [3] fixes this issue for Marco, making
the keybindings change notifications work with GLib >= 2.43.
