In case other distributions encounter this issue, I had a private
conversation with Ray where he was going to try having a post-logout
script that updated the config file instead of simply including a new
config file. Ray maybe you should post whether this works and how you
Also fwiw talked to Owen about this today (after he hit the bug) and his
suggestion was the rename the file solution, specifically rename
session.conf to session2.conf, ship both in the RPM, have session.conf
be the backward-compatible one with a big comment in it "THIS CONFIG
FILE IS IGNORED, USE session2.conf" and point the new dbus-daemon at
session2.conf as the default config file. Owen felt that /usr/share
wasn't right, citing fontconfig as another example where a config file
is in /etc even though few local sites would change it.
A final thought today, does the selinux stuff really need to raise(HUP)
? Is there no other way to tell the selinux lib to reload its config?
Having to raise(HUP) seems pretty busted.
