yast2 error (gconf) "Failed to get connection to session"

I ran yast2 in console, and here is what I logged: (I did an upgrade
from Suse 11 -> 11.1, FYI)

Failed to get value for
`/schemas/apps/metacity/general/num_workspaces’: 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 ‘GConf configuration system’
(http://www.gnome.org/projects/gconf/) for information. (Details - 1:
Failed to get connection to session: Did not receive a reply. Possible
causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message
bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the
network connection was broken.)
