consolekit-0.4.6-2 should hopefully fix the problem. I pushed it 2
seconds ago, so might take some time for mirrors to sync.

For those interested: this was entirely my fault. I accidentally built
consolekit against "testing" instead of "extra", so it works fine for
people using the "testing" repository (i.e. the people who would
normally find problems before the package hits "extra"), but would
segfault if you only use "extra" with "testing" disabled (due to your
glib2, dbus, etc being too old).

Sorry for the inconvenience (and hope it works now!).
