[arch-general] Broken DBus

DBus broke for me after last upgrade [0]. I'm using testing repository 
and have:
dbus 1.4.20-1
dbus-core 1.4.20-2
dbus-glib 0.98-1
dbus-python 1.0.0-1

but disabling it and downgrading (via pacman -Syuu) to:
dbus 1.4.16-1
dbus-core 1.4.16-1
dbus-glib 0.98-1
dbus-python 0.84.0-1

doesn't fix problem (not entirely at least). On testing Gnome starts in 
fallback mode, chromium and wicd-curses says:
Failed to call method: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ChildExited: 
Launch helper exited with unknown return code 1

After downgrading, wicd-curses (which uses dbus-python) works fine, but 
other things are still broken.

dbus-daemon is present in process list...
What can be wrong, where should I look?

[2012-04-11 21:59] upgraded dbus-core (1.4.20-1 -> 1.4.20-2)
looks suspicious to me, but downgrading only dbus-core to 1.4.20-1 
doesn't change anything.
