Ah. That one is in dbus-1-utils, an auxilliary package.
Hmmm, this must be one of the rough edges of dbus. So I created a
.xsession and .Xclients and tried both of the fragments from the manpage
but none of them seem to be executed when I login. I'm using gdm/Gnome
so maybe it has some other mechanism for startup? I considered adding
it to ~/.gnome2/session-manual but I'm pretty sure there's no way for
globally available environment variables to get set in there.
I'm out of ideas for where to look.
