I am not sure what exactly causes it, and no amount of inspecting the Fedora spec files would give me any clues.  I made sure all the permissions were the same as what Fedora installs, and made sure the files were identical.  Not sure what magic they are using over there, but I wish some would spread over here ;)

Unfortunately, I don't think there's much in the way of debug logging
from the dbus system bus activation bits because there are quite a few
forks and execs there.  But you may need to patch dbus and the system
bus activation helper binary to log output to somewhere and try to
figure out why it's not successfully launching.

It was committed to upstream git in the past two weeks or so, yes.  But
probably not with the options that I'd like to see (it came from
somebody else).  I'll still likely patch the Fedora version to just use
"-u -f" again.
