This is exactly what I meant would break - it's upset that 
dbus_connection_get_unix_user doesn't work anymore.

This error should be changed so it isn't a fatal error, instead the bus 
should apply any default policies (user=* instead of user=someone) and 
continue normally. It's probably very simple, grep for that error 
message to find the relevant code.
