dbus is the reference implementation of D-Bus, a message bus for
communication between applications and system services.

This is a maintenance update for the dbus 1.14.x stable branch.

git tag: dbus-1.14.10

Bug fixes:

• Avoid a dbus-daemon crash if re-creating a connection's policy fails.
  If it isn't possible to re-create its policy (for example if it belongs
  to a user account that has been deleted or if the Name Service Switch is
  broken, on a system not supporting SO_PEERGROUPS), we now log a warning,
  continue to use its current policy, and continue to reload other
  connections' policies. (dbus#343; Peter Benie, Simon McVittie)

• If getting the groups from a user ID fails, report the error correctly,
  instead of logging "(null)" (dbus#343, Simon McVittie)

• Return the primary group ID in GetConnectionCredentials()' UnixGroupIDs
  field for processes with a valid-but-empty supplementary group list
  (dbus!422, cptpcrd)
