We're not.

$ emacs

Successfully activated service 'org.gnome.GConf'

It seems the problem is that the session bus launched by whatever the distro 
uses did not fill in ~/.dbus/session-bus/$MACHINEID-0.

On my system:
$ cat ~/.dbus/session-bus/`cat /etc/machine-id`-*
# This file allows processes on the machine with id 
a6201b12a16264429955cb345721054e using 
# display :0 to find the D-Bus session bus with the below address.
# If the DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS environment variable is set, it will
# be used rather than this file.
# See "man dbus-launch" for more details.

$ LC_ALL=C ls -l ~/.dbus/session-bus/                
total 4

$ ps 60268
$ xprop -id 4194305
X Error of failed request:  BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request:  21 (X_ListProperties)
  Resource id in failed request:  0x400001
  Serial number of failed request:  12
  Current serial number in output stream:  12

This file is stale. So the launcher failed to create the file as needed.
