Bug#501642: gedit only starts once, then just exits when started for a bit, then hangs

Package: gedit
Version: 2.22.3-1
Severity: important

I can start gedit *once*, after which it opens a window.

Exiting gedit causes the window to be closed, and the gedit process goes away.

After that, trying to start gedit immediately exits the process for a few times.

After that, all further invocations of gedit just hang in connect:

   connect(13, {sa_family=AF_FILE, path="/tmp/gedit-svn.root.3447731596"}, 110

The socket exists and is opwned by dbus-daemon:

   unix  2      [ ACC ]     STREAM     LISTENING     18331    4422/dbus-daemon    /tmp/gedit-svn.root.3447731596
   unix  3      [ ]         STREAM     CONNECTING    0        -                   /tmp/gedit-svn.root.3447731596
   unix  3      [ ]         STREAM     CONNECTING    0        -                   /tmp/gedit-svn.root.3447731596
   unix  3      [ ]         STREAM     CONNECTING    0        -                   /tmp/gedit-svn.root.3447731596
   unix  3      [ ]         STREAM     CONNECTING    0        -                   /tmp/gedit-svn.root.3447731596
   unix  3      [ ]         STREAM     CONNECTING    0        -                   /tmp/gedit-svn.root.3447731596
   unix  3      [ ]         STREAM     CONNECTING    0        -                   /tmp/gedit-svn.root.3447731596

deleting the socket, or killing dbus both makes gedit start again.
