Same problem here. Also note the excessive number of
"/usr/bin/dbus-daemon --fork --print-pid 5 --print-address 7
--session" that are started for some reason.
Together with error message mentioned above:
(Details - 1: Failed to get connection to session: Failed to execute
dbus-launch to autolaunch D-Bus session)"
They just keep on coming, have 406 processes like that now.
