I can't agree more ..

We had a lot of problem when finalizing Mandrake 8.0 because installing
schema at Mdk install (in chrooted env) was causing gconfd and oafd
processes to stay up and running and was preventing clean install of Mdk

Bad hack was to add "gconftool --shutdown ; killall oafd" when
installing schema at Mdk install time..

BTW, there is no "--uninstall-schema-file" in gconftool and it is
missing when building packages (rpm in our case..)
