It means one of two things:

1) system tools backends is an autostartable service but wasn't found
or 2) system tools backends is not an autostartable service and wasn't 

If it's #1, there's a .service file in its package. Find it. Make sure 
it's in one of the directories the daemon searches for 
(/usr/share/dbus-1/services, normally).

If it's #2, there is no .service file. But it means the service must be 
running before any program attempts to use it.
