Avoiding any other comment on this thread, gnome-settings-daemon
really needs to be launched _first_, before any other apps.

Otherwise, all the apps on the desktop will quite likely have
to do one or more "theme switches" when g-s-d starts up, which
is not conducive to a fast and attractive startup.

(It's a little more obscure to me why g-s-d is being launched via
Bonobo; I think its so that everybody can try to start g-s-d
without race conditions; a shotgun approach to try and avoid
not having g-s-d running...)
