Yesterday I did:

  guix pull -p test-staging --branch=staging

and then tested:

  ./test-staging/bin/guix system vm gnu/system/examples/desktop.tmpl

$ ./test-staging/bin/guix describe

Everything in the VM seems to work, as discussed on IRC.

So this suggests that the problem may have to do with state kept
somewhere in GSettings or who knows what.

Could you share logs from /var/log/messages, /var/log/gdm/greeter.log,
and anything that may be relevant?
