You were right, I thought that the session differs from the system bus.  
Now I know, I was wrong. But I still don't understand how to make  
application using dbus to use the system bus. Some applications(e.g. bmpx)  
don't run without session bus(on my PC) they need to start dbus-daemon  
--session and set DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS. What should I do to run this  
apps only with the system bus?
