Hi Andrea,

Okay, I'm able to reproduce warnings. As emacs tries to lookup DBUS session
bus in the environment, and if it doesn't find one, it starts one. And "dbus"
keeps running in the same TTY after you close emacs, so when you try to exit
From the SSH session, it hangs waiting for all processes (attached to current
TTY) to exit, and therefore you've to kill the SSH session forcibly. To verify
this, you can kill the started dbus-daemon (attached to the same TTY) and you
should be able to exit from SSH session as usual.

I'm not sure if my explanation is correct for this behavior.
