This isn't exactly a D-BUS issues - D-BUS on RH-ish systems merely check
those files - the problem apparently is that they're not written.

It seems like an issue with either

 1. gdm
 2. The fast user switching bits
 3. or the lack of integration of these bits in Fedora with pam-console

I'd chase the issue upstream as I understand we don't ship these bits in
Fedora at all. I do believe the pam-console stuff is upstream though so
it should be fixable upstream - some distros (like Debian) just disable
these bits.
