I agree. the above DOES work. My question was why, if I execute eval
`dbus-launch --exit-with-session` before launching gnome, it does NOT
In other words, the eval command will create the variable
DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS, it will fork a process for dbus-launch, which
should be used by all applications needing the bus.
I was just looking for a way to have a persistent running process of dbus
so that I could do many things, not just gnome.
FWIW, this method works fine with my current configuration and gnome 2.14.

Maybe I will.
Like I say, it's more an intellectual question than a bug. I like the way
I do it now as documented in the dbus manpage.
