When I try to run the terminal application from gnome it hangs (then simply disappears).

When I use xterm (or the gnome-drop-down-terminal) and try and run gnome-terminal I see the following:

Error constructing proxy for org.gnome.Terminal:/org/gnome/Terminal/Factory0: Error calling StartServiceByName for org.gnome.Terminal: Timeout was reached

Why does the terminal need a proxy? What is it proxying too?

It seems to be related to your user configuration. Could you please try to create a new user and try to open gnome-terminal from his account?

Hi, actually the problem seems to be related to dbus configuration/registration, so the proxy is related to dbus (and not a network proxy). Have you try to reinstall the gnome-terminal package (sudo yum reinstall gnome-terminal) ?

Yes, reinstall gnome-terminal is the correct way.
