Sonatype IQ Server CLI fails with gconf errors

Problem:  You attempt to run the nexus-iq-cli application on Linux, and it fails with the following error:

GConf Error: Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See for information.

Solution: This error is caused by a misconfigured desktop environment, the scanner is unable to contact the Gnome configuration daemon "gconf".  The reason the scanner is trying to contact "gconf" is to read the system level HTTP proxy settings.  So to work around this run the scanner as follows:

java -jar nexus-iq-cli-1.5.jar <additional-args>
