MATE re-uses the GNOME 2 code, but it is not GNOME 2. In particular, because GNOME didn't care about allowing GNOME 2 to co-exist with GNOME 3, the settings keys for MATE are different to GNOME 2.

If MATE were actually GNOME 2, then switching between GNOME 2 and MATE would be completely transparent. It isn't.
