Public bug reported:

1) Upgraded from ubuntu 16.04 (xenial) to 16.10 (yakkety)

Result:

My /var/log/kern.log file was very quickly filling with MB and MB of
messages of the form

Oct 16 12:45:23 localhost gnome-shell[2655]: failed to commit changes to dconf: 
GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ExecFailed: Failed to execute 
program ca.desrt.dconf: No such file or directory
 
and my /var/log/syslog file was very quickly filling with MB and MB of messages 
of the form

Oct 16 12:44:30 localhost gnome-shell[2655]: failed to commit changes to dconf: 
GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ExecFailed: Failed to execute 
program ca.desrt.dconf: No such file or directory
Oct 16 12:44:30 localhost dbus-daemon[2284]: Activating service 
name='ca.desrt.dconf'
Oct 16 12:44:30 localhost dbus-daemon[2284]: Activated service 'ca.desrt.dconf' 
failed: Failed to execute program ca.desrt.dconf: No such file or directory

Workaround: 
moved .config/dconf to a backup directory (contents attached), and restarted: 
while at least the kern.log logs keep coming, at least they are coming like one 
at a time over a long period of time rather than a million at a time, also 
gnome-shell seems much more stable now (it hasn't crashed since I did this).
