Mate Desktop: runs no panels, but ten instances of Caja

2014-01-19 01:44:01 Moscow time

Have just found how to fix the problem described in the title: Mate desktop breaks with no panels and tens of caja windows on user switching?.
Environment: FreeBSD 9.2, Mate Desktop 1.6.1.

Solution is to set your user (not root) as the owner for the $HOME/.cache/dconf/user directory. Use the chown.
