Bug? org.freedesktop.DBus no longer has unique name :1.0

I don't remember this change going in but GetNameOwner on
'org.freedesktop.DBus' returns 'org.freedesktop.DBus'.  This special
case breaks the assumption that unique names start with a colon so
client code needs to handle this instead of handling generic unique
names. Even some of our internal API such as GetConnectionUnixProcessID
does not support the org.freedesktop.DBus special case.
