Do you also have an older version of DBUS installed? it looks like a
problem I had when the daemon is running the 0.60 version, but the
client is linking to 0.36 (or similar) libraries. Try setting
LD_LIBRARY_PATH to the location of the 0.60 client bindings.

This looks like a false alarm (typo in the printed messages?) it's
trying to connect to the socket in the DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS
