Here are the steps to verbose-debug something:

$ dbus-daemon --session --print-address >/tmp/output 2>&1 &
$ head -1 /tmp/output
[should print the address of the bus just launched]
$ DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS=[above address] bash
[launches a new shell using the bus that verbose logs to /tmp/output]
$ myapp

maybe this should be a dbus-launch feature, like
$ dbus-launch --verbose-output-file=/tmp/output bash

which would then let you run stuff from the bash, while looking at 
verbose log spew in /tmp/output

But at least the steps to do it manually might be nice to add to the man 
page, assuming I got them right ... I didn't test it.
