gconfd uses /tmp not ~

for some reason my gconfd switched and started using the /tmp directory to save states instead of the ~/.gconfd... it says to set GCONF_LOCAL_LOCKS to change it to use the /tmp, but that flag is not set. i keep getting this error, and cant run banshee. does anyone know how to change it back to use my ~/.gconfd directory. thanks

Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See for information.
