I recently did an update (emerge -avuDN --with-bdeps=y @world), and it pulled in sys-apps/dbus-1.10.6 as one of the updates. After I rebooted, I restarted tigervnc's server under my user account, which I run gnome inside of. When trying to launch gnome-terminal, it would fail due to the DISPLAY variable not being passed through to VNC. These are the errors I'd receive in /var/log/messages:

Code:

Mar  7 17:40:24 linus dbus-daemon[6423]: Activating service name='org.gnome.Terminal'
Mar  7 17:40:24 linus dbus-daemon[6423]: Failed to parse arguments: Cannot open display:
Mar  7 17:40:24 linus dbus-daemon[6423]: Activated service 'org.gnome.Terminal' failed: Process org.gnome.Terminal exited with status 10
Mar  7 17:40:24 linus gnome-terminal[7207]: Error constructing proxy for org.gnome.Terminal:/org/gnome/Terminal/Factory0: Error calling StartServiceByName for org.gnome.Terminal: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ChildExited: Process org.gnome.Terminal exited with status 10


I manually downgraded dbus back to 1.8.16, rebooted, and everything is working fine. To me it seems that 1.10.6 may have some issues?
