I'm reasonably sure that neither of these are actually FoxtrotGPS issues:

My suggestion is that this is an integration issue rather than something
that would be appropriate for us to try to address in FoxtrotGPS per se,
and it should probably be addressed in terms of system policy; if you're
using SHR or another FSO-based system, then there are probably already
ways that you can automatically prevent the system from suspending
whenever the GPS is on or in use by any application; fsoraw can certainly
be used to control this on a per-application basis, but it sounds more
like a general `GPS keeps the system awake' rule is more what you want.

It sounds like there's something wrong with your gconf installation--
the only way that I can reproduce this issue is by preventing gconfd
from running.
