$ dpkg -L dbus|grep /etc/dbus-1/session
I don't know why you don't have this directory. My session.conf file
refers to this directory anyway:

I don't know how to list directories...
But if you change the D-Bus configuration, you will need to restart
it, I think. You may use SIGHUP but according to the dbus-daemon
manpage, SIGHUP will cause the D-Bus daemon to PARTIALLY reload its
configuration file. You may not want to restart your main D-Bus
To check if it works, just see with "ps" if Mission Control is
starting when Empathy try to use it. And if you have several versions
of MC, ls -l /proc/<MC-pid>/exe to see if this is the version you
want. I used to be tricked by using the wrong version!
