First, i don't know much about dbus stuff itself, so I asked, some months
ago, how to check that dbus is really working. It compiles
flawlessly (except the warnings i mentioned), but it fails at

And on my computer, 'dbus-monitor' fails with:
Failed to open connection to session bus: Failed to get autolaunch address from launched dbus-daemon
