Those are unrelated log files. Take a look at ~/.xsession-errors*.

Gedit seems not to use /run/user/*/dconf/user, if it would, it could be
the source of issues, at least after running gedit with root privileges.

Did you test pluma? Unfortunately pluma does use 
/run/user/*/dconf/user, but OTOH it's based on GTK2 and closer to
the old gedit, than gedit is nowadays.
