Portage just updated sys-apps dbus from 1.8.4 to 1.8.6, and now xfce fails to start. It fails to open socket /tmp/dbus-blahblah: permission denied. The socket file does not exist. I masked it for now, and everything works as before. Anyone else hitting this?

EDIT: Figured it out; I added the X USE flag to sys-apps/dbus, and it works fine now. Not sure why I didn't need it for 1.8.4 yet. I vaguely remember that there's an environment variable I can set somewhere instead of this, but I forget what it is now.

Still failing to start, after update to dbus-1.8.8. I have to mask everything above 1.8.4 to get an xfce desktop. Since 1.8.4 is no longer in portage, I'm stuck using a binary package. WTF guys?

I can't say I'm having any issues with dbus & xfce. I've had dbus running for a long time, currently using 1.8.8; and have yet to have any issues with it. Do you having dbus started (for Openrc, having dbus started in the default run level). What use flags do you have set for dbus? Are you trying to start something through ssh (a common issue according to bugzilla). Have you even bothered opening up a bug report for the developers to look at it, and resolve the problem (from what I hear developers don't monitor the forums as much).

I wanted to toss it out there before I filed a report, in case it was just something stupid, like a leftover config file or something like that.

Now that I'm thinking about it, a permissions problem could be caused by a change in group flags somewhere. I'll have to investigate some more...
