    Hmm. Okay, mind if I ask some stupid questions?

    I'm assuming you upgraded from 2.6.24, correct? (not .25-rcX).

    Are you running either debian or ubuntu? If so, do you have the
    dbus-x11 package installed? Alternately, does /usr/bin/dbus-launch
    exist? If no, try installing dbus-x11 and try again. I think a
    side-effect of installing is to start dbus earlier, and may perhaps
    avoid the race (if it is a race that's causing all this, which I still
    think it is).

    References if you're bored:

    If the above doesn't help, is there anything interesting in ~/.xsession-errors?
