I have no clue what could cause this and it does not happen on a 4.5 
x86_64 system I have at home :( Fact is that it happens when it is 
supposed to mail out a diff between the current and previous dconf file.

So in itself not critical to dconf, but pretty annoying when you expect 
that functionality to work. If you disable mailing, I would think the 
problem goes away as a consequence.

It would help if you could investigate what is causing this. Maybe a 
permissions problem or something related to selinux ? Python is a pretty 
simple language to make modifications to and do trial-and-error.
