Subject:   no browser starts, possible dbus-launch problem?

After recent upgrade of many ports I cannot start either
firefox2 or kazehakase on alpha FBSD 6.4-release. (Both
worked fine before the upgrade).

When I try to launch either browser I see something like this:

% ps ax|grep dbus
94452  ??  Ss     0:00.00 /usr/local/bin/dbus-daemon --fork --print-pid 7 --print-address 9 --sessi
94448  p0  S+     0:00.05 dbus-launch --autolaunch c147699dcd782c00b8cb56ec49707d8a --binary-syntax
94451  p0  S+     0:00.00 dbus-launch --autolaunch c147699dcd782c00b8cb56ec49707d8a --binary-syntax
94463  p2  R+     0:00.00 grep dbus
% 

The dbus-launch processes never exit, which they should do
according the man page. I wonder if this is the problem?

With kazehakase I get a further error message when I try to kill unresponsive
kazehakase process:

GConf Error: Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See http://www.gnome.org/projects/gconf/ for information. (Details -  1: Failed to get connection to session: Failed to execute dbus-launch to autolaunch D-Bus session)

Please help.

many thanks
anton
