No, but I didn't try any other distro packages either.

OK, can't help much in that case (but maybe someone else can) since
distro installs usually rely on Orbit for GConf, not DBus. It's a pity
that GConf-DBus seems to be unmaintained...
From what I know about the Orbit-based GConf it should start the daemon
automatically, so no explicit startup sequence required. Do the logs in
~/.sugar/default/logs show anything unusual?
You could also try running "gconftool-2 -R /" to check whether there's a
more general gconf breakage.

That is highly likely as 0.82 was only the bare minimum in Debian and
quite buggy in general (in my experience). I hope that some users will
switch from sugar-jhbuild (which is targeted to developers, not users)
to Debian packages now that 0.84 is available.
