"key not found" warning when running YaST from a VNC session

Environment

SUSE Linux Enterprise Deskop 11 (SLED 11)
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (SLED 11)

Situation

Remote access is established to a SLED 11 or SLES 11 system through VNC.  When attempting to run YaST the following message is displayed:

WARNING **: key not found [/apps/yast-control-center/cc_actions_list]

YaST will normally still run and functions correctly.

Resolution

This warning is due to a gconf entry that has a missing value.

Open a terminal window and enter the command:

gconf-editor

On the left, expand "apps" then select "yast-control-center".  Once selected you will see the values associated with the selection on the right.  The "cc_actions_list" will most likely have no values associated.  Double-click "cc_actions_list" and add an entry with a ";" then OK the change.  The final result should look like this:

cc_actions_list               [;]

Run YaST again and the warning should be gone.
