I have:

The first one is launched at system startup, the other two when I login.
So I cannot explain why emacs would complains about it...

So, on the two remote servers, I "config"ured emacs to work without DBUS 
and recompiled, but nothing changed: still emacs starts dbus and still 
Konsole does not close automatically unless I kill it.
Then I removed *gconf* support too and now the problem seems to be gone.

  bye & Thanks
