i am still having this issue, although i reinstalled all those mentioned 
packages (incl wicd, dbus-core and some others), but gained nothing.
at startup, i'll find those messages in /var/log/daemons.log, saying
localhost dbus[351]: [system] Activation via systemd failed for unit 
'dbus-org.wicd.daemon.service': Unit dbus-org.wicd.daemon.service failed 
to load: No such file or directory. See system logs and 'systemctl 
status dbus-org.wicd.daemon.service' for details.
while systmctl just says
           Loaded: error (Reason: No such file or directory)
           Active: inactive (dead)
so i updated to the most recent initscripts-systemd-20120412-1 and 
systemd-arch-units-20120412-1, but starting dbus does nothing but create 
a pidfile.
anyone got a hint where to look first? i have no idea what to do atm.
thanks in advance
