Can't run any reports

It looks like I have both GConf (ver 1.0.9-16) and GConf2 (ver 2.10.0-4)
installed. I searched for gconf (locate gconf) and after many pages of
output, saw that gconf is installed at /usr/bin/gconfd-1.
I also looked for a running gconf process and found:
$ ps ax | grep gconf
2180 ? S 0:04 /usr/libexec/gconfd-2 5
25596 pts/0 S+ 0:00 grep gconf
I stopped the gconfd-2 process shown above (kill 2180) and ran gnucash,
running a report still causes gnucash to abort. BTW, after I ran
gnucash, i saw that the gconfd-2 process was running again.
Let me know if you have any ideas and thx for your help.
