Just to add a data point, I see the same problem (startx never
 completes, gnome-vfs-daemon keeps getting forked by dbus
 to no end) on 2.6.20-git9 while -git7 is fine, and my pieces are
 from FC6 updates as of two days ago or so:

[asuardi@sandman ~]$ rpm -q dbus gnome-vfs2 hal nautilus

Since the patch breaks userspace in a deadly way, I guess
 it should be reverted until an usable version of the fix can
 be found. And yes, I'm up for testing of course.
