Well, there is one gconfd per home directory basically. Things will
still be a bit hosed if you have GNOME apps from two different
accounts showing on the same display.

However you can't really handle both the different-display and the
different-home-dir case; _something_ has to be shared to get any
communication going.

Anyway it's safe to say that GNOME 1.2 is totally hosed either way,
because sometimes it has per-display info and sometimes per-home-dir
info or per-machine info, and it doesn't know how to coordinate all
