About the gconftool-2 postinstall script hangs:

Is there an easy way to figure out why gconftool is hanging?

I guess the problem is starting up gconfd-2.  It fails if there is a
stale /tmp/gconfd-USER directory with files in it, look into /tmp if
there is a directory gconfd-USERNAME and if so remove it and try to run
the postinstall script again.  You may need to shutdown any running
gconfd-2 instances to do so.

That's not it. /tmp is empty. Also, if I try to see if gconfd is running with "gconftool-2 --ping", that also hangs.

And during gconftool-2 is running (hanging), gconfd-2 is active or
doesn't it run at all?

Evtl. you're using another directory as TMP?  What says:
set | grep TMP
set | grep TEMP

Probably the same reason why gnomevfs-ls hangs for you, the tools are
just sitting there and waiting until gconfd-2 is ready.

It only hangs for http. ftp and local stuff seems to work fine.

Interesting. As I said, the tools always are sitting there and waiting until gconfd-2 is started up and ready, however I would expect that all tools are failing then.

How is it going?

It you're actually using /tmp as your TMP directory and the problem is
not resolved yet, it would help me to debug this problem if you could
post the output of `cygcheck -svr` *as an attachment*, please.
