The next time an application uses GConf, the daemon is automatically
respawned anyway, right?
I don't know, that's why I asked ;)
So there should be no difference between -HUP and -TERM.
Actually, if the behaviour you described is how it works, -TERM may be a
better idea than -HUP performance-wise - no need to repeatedly re-read things
eg. during a rpm transaction which installs many packages that have something
to do with GConf.
