gnome-vfs problems with XP SP2

I have just installed cygwin yesterday, and I am having problems
getting gnome-vfs to work.  It always hangs in the postinstall.
Looking at the script it is trying to execute
(/etc/postinstall/, it is trying to run
gconftool-2.  If I run that script manually, it also hangs.  However,
if I cancel the installation, then gnomevfs-ls will work anyway with
local directories.  However, it doesn't work with a remote
webdav-enabled web server.  So


just hangs.  That directory works just fine in Mozilla.  ftp seems to
work fine with gnomevfs-ls.

This is on a Windows XP SP2 machine.  Is this a known problem?  I
looked through the archives, but I couldn't find anything pertinent.

Thank you,
Walter Landry
