Subject: [PATCH] gnu: Move dconf-editor native-input glib:bin to

dconf-editor crashes with "No GSettings schemas are installed on the system",
this provides the expected schemas.

I have noticed that dconf-editor by default crashes as it has no schemas.
This is probably undesired, as most users install dconf-editor to edit
settings on gnome. But there is no indication that the actual error is
missing glib:bin. The issue isn't fixed by moving glib:bin to inputs.
It has to be in propagated inputs.

Kind regards,

I don't see anything to fix; dconf-editor complains an throws an error
when there are no schemas found.  Schemas are found via a
native-search-path defined on glib (XDG_DATA_DIRS).

Fixing #22138 would probably help to some degree but otherwise that's
normal Guix behavior, I think.  Thus, closing.
