This will work as long as everything you use in your session is a
spawned by gnome-session.  If not, you might have better luck with
something like this (from the dbus-launch man page):

  eval 'dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session'

The dbus library uses the DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS environment variable
to find the session bus.  If this is set in whatever process you're
launching rhythmbox or rhythmbox-client from, everything should work.
