Which gconf database and gtkrc file will be used is defined by the
environment on which Sugar is running.

To make sure you are modifying the Sugar GConf, run gconftool-2 or
gconf-editor from inside the terminal activity.

Sugar installs its own gtkrc files, called sugar-72.gtkrc or sugar-100.gtkrc.
