Charadon via SlackBuilds-users <slackbuilds-users at slackbuilds.org> put forth the proposition:
> 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
> <listen>unix:dir=/tmp</listen>.
> 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?

Have you read /etc/dbus-1/session.conf and tried making an e.g. 
session-local.conf or files matching session.d/*.conf ?
