  glib-compile-schemas doesn't compile relocatable schemas

Bug description:
  Dear Developers,

  I am using the Ubuntu 14.04 development release with the GNOME Shell 3.10 and, because my wife is using this system as well, I defined some settings in a gschema.override file.
  Everything is working right, except applying settings related to custom key-bindings.

  I added following lines my gschema.override file:
  custom-keybindings = ['/org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/media-keys/custom-keybinding/custom0']

  name = 'Launch Gedit'
  command = 'gedit'
  binding = '<Super>g'

  I put my gschema.override file in the '/usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas' directory. After I added these lines, I ran 'glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib2.0/schemas' and no error was reported.
  For testing purposes I created a new user, logged out, and logged in with the new user. In the best case, the custom key-binding were applied automatically, but this has not happened. Other defined key-bindings were applied correctly.
  In the gnome-control-center's key-bindings tab, the table containing  custom shortcuts is empty, containing one row with empty columns.

  Running 'gsettings list-recursively org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins
  /media-keys/custom-keybindings/custom0/' shows, the name, command, and
  binding key pairs contain empty ('') values.

  If I manually run following commands, the custom key-binding is created correctly:
  gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.media-keys.custom-keybinding:/org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/media-keys/custom-keybindings/custom0/ name "Launch Gedit"
  gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.media-keys.custom-keybinding:/org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/media-keys/custom-keybindings/custom0/ command "gedit"
  gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.media-keys.custom-keybinding:/org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/media-keys/custom-keybindings/custom0/ binding "<Super>g"

  Am I doing anything wrong when I want to add a custom key-bindings in
  my schema file, or  is 'glib-compile-schemas' really not applying this
  part from the schema file?
