It's in  work/dbus-1.2.16/dbus/dbus-memory.c

3. Look for an abort.

There isn't one in that file as far as I can tell:
root at kg-v7# pwd
root at kg-v7# grep abort work/dbus-1.2.16/dbus/dbus-memory.c

Well, it says:
process 36926: arguments to dbus_message_new_signal() were incorrect,
"_dbus_check_is_valid_path (path)" failed in file dbus-message.c line 1165.
This is normally a bug in some application using the D-Bus library.
 D-Bus is not compiled with backtrace support so unable to print a backtrace

I don't know if that message is a red herring or not.
I recompiled dbus with:
make -DWITH_DEBUG all deinstall reinstall

But that didn't help a bit.
