that looks right.
what you might try, is loading a fresh
dbus install from source(if you feel comfortable
with that) and during the ./configure stage
add the dbus-user switch then after installing
add your name to /etc/group(or before installing)


this way you know that dbus is compiled
with you as the username, and that any other issue
might be in /etc/dbus-1/*
in some config file.(or check /etc/dbus-1/*
first before compiling)

heres a good set of instructions:
