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