New issue 328 by grapescan: RunOrRaise and dbus(?)

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Set some bindings like this:
  ("M-t", runOrRaise "transmission" (className =? "Transmission"))
  ("M-w", runOrRaise "firefox" (className =? "Shiretoko"))
2. Try to run these programs with created shortcuts
3. Try to run these programs without created shortcuts (i.e. from terminal
or gmrun)

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Starting from terminal or gmrun looks fine while using shortcuts causes
strange behavior. Firefox complains about connecting to session:
"/usr/bin/dbus-launch terminated abnormally without any error message".
Transmission doesn't want to open torrents from Firefox (torrents opened
with Transmission from web-browser). It says something like "Transmission
is already started."

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
I use actual version of ArchLinux. I checked dbus packages - they seem to
be OK. Packages xmonad-darcs and xmonad-contrib-darcs built a few weeks ago.
