In addition, changing the keyboard settings and adding new keyboard
layouts, the so called "GNOME-Einstellungsdämons" (GNOME
settings-daemon) crashes because It has been started to often. The only
way to handle this is to remove all new installed keyboard layouts.

Here is the original error message (german):
- ---
Beim Starten des GNOME-Einstellungsdämons ist ein Fehler 	aufgetreten.

Möglicherweise funktionieren einige Dinge, wie z.B. Themen, Klänge oder
Hintergrundeinstellungen nicht korrekt.

Der Einstellungsdämon wurde zu oft neu gestartet.

Die letzte Fehlermeldung war:

Child process did not give an error message, unknown failure occurred

Beim nächsten Anmelden wird GNOME weiterhin versuchen, den
Einstellungsdämon neu zu starten.
