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
dbus-1.0.1-9.fc6
gnome-vfs2-2.16.2-2.fc6
hal-0.5.8.1-6.fc6
nautilus-2.16.2-7.fc6

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.
