After udating "dbus" packages to version 0.60-6, "avahi" and
"hal" daemons fail to start up correctly during system boot.
This is very annoying when logging in to a "GNOME" session
as various applications such as the "gnome-power-manager" stop
to work. Media detection is of course also out of order.
The breakage has appeared sometime between version 0.60-3 which
works correctly and the current version. Downgrading to version
0.60-3 allows to recover a working "GNOME" desktop.
