Well, I don't know whether this is really relevant, but I noticed that
xfce4-session actually depends on dbus-glib and not dbus. It might be
necessary to reinstall dbus-glib with DBUS_DISABLE_CHECKS set.
This is easily done by modifying devel/dbus-glib/Makefile to set
--enable-checks=no at line 320.
Of course, this is just a hack and doesn't fix the real problem and we're
probably all getting tired of this thread :)
