g-p-m is working fine with DBUS cvs -- but I believe J5 made some
changes to the DBUS package for rawhide to put stuff in different
directories. The breakage is probably due to that.

Here's the changelog for the rpm:

* Fri Jan 20 2006 John (J5) Palmieri <johnp at> 0.60-6
- Fix up patch to init script so it refrences /bin not /usr/bin

* Fri Jan 20 2006 John (J5) Palmieri <johnp at> 0.60-5
- move base libraries and binaries to /bin and /lib so they can be
started before /usr is mounted on network mounted /usr systems
- have D-Bus start early

Probably best to bugzilla the dbus package, or pester J5 on IRC.
