This output just tells us that an error occurred; it doesn’t tell us what error occurred. For that, we’d need to examine the main.log file.

For a ticket that has been open for a long time with no resolution, I’d assume that either the problem has been fixed by someone who was not aware of the ticket, or nobody who’s encountered the ticket knows how to fix it. If you’ve examined the main.log file and matched its contents to what’s in the ticket, then it appears to be the latter.

You could report the problem to the developers of gnome-desktop; they’re probably the ones who would have to fix it.
