There are about 84 dbus core related bugs found in bugzilla.

 Some of these patches are probably outdated and may be closed like

*Bug 10599* <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10599> - 
dbus-1.0.2 breaks strict aliasing rules

others may be usefull to be fixed as

*Bug 25841* <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=25841> - 
reconnection of the dbus-daemon fails

or may be already fixed but still open like

*Bug 22783* <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=22783> - 
SIGSEGV in dbus_address_entry_get_value()

so bugzilla is a good source for potential patches.

BTW: Before the 1.3.1 release I did a similiar review of windows related 
bugs and will do so for the 1.3.2 release.
