I saw such behavior also with the system_bus_socket while porting powersave to 
Mandriva 2006.1 and I didn't found a way to fix this (e.g. HAL could connect, 
but powersave couldn't - with the same error message). The same daemon work 
well on SUSE, Fedora, Debian, Gentoo, but not on Mandriva. No idea, what the 
reason is.

On Mandriva there was no SELinux, so I would say this is not a SELinux
