Terminal corba errors

Every so often the terminal comes up with a corba error "Adding client to server's list failed, CORBA error: IDL:omg.org/CORBA/COMM_FAILURE:1.0", as shown in the image.


The solution seems to be to delete

rm ~/.gconfd/saved_state ~/.gconfd/saved_state.tmp 

And then to kill gconfd

kill gconfd-2

Seems to work for me, but I can't guarantee that it won't do anything nasty to your system.
