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?
