Hi all,
So there's a situation upstream with webkit, dbus and the epiphany 
browser. Basically, in future versions of webkit, because the default 
dbus socket path is an abstract socket, it will crash pretty much no 
matter what.

What needs to change to get around this, is to change 
<listen>unix:tmpdir=/tmp</listen> in /usr/share/dbus-1/session.conf to

Now upstream dbus is considering making the latter default. Now my 
question for all of you, is simply. What do? When I next update epiphany 
should I include instructions for the user to modify their session.conf 
to get it working?
