I don't reboot often aside from kernel updates so after a reboot
yesterday I noticed that dbus didn't start (wicd warning about dbus)
and then tried to start it manually getting the warning about the pid

Didn't had time to look into it yesterday, but today I've rebooted to
see if it was an isolated issue or not. It isn't, dbus won't start at


dbus 1.4.20-1
linux 3.3.1-1
initscripts 2012.03.2-1
systemd 44-5
initscripts-systemd v44.1-2
libsystemd 44-5
systemd-arch-units 20120401-1

If I forgot to add some package relevant, please tell me.
