There is actually still a dbus error... it doesn't stop things to work 

Strange one... It looks like after I start an activity (and the activity 
send some messages to the console), the first message the presence 
service try to send to the console cause this traceback:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/marco/sugar-jhbuild/source/sugar/sugar/logger.py", line 
58, in _log
    self._messages, timeout = 1000)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/dbus/proxies.py", line 102, in 
    reply_message = self._connection.send_with_reply_and_block(message, 
  File "dbus_bindings.pyx", line 455, in 
DBusException: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the 
remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy 
blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection 
was broken.

The method has been successfully invoked though, apparently. Also the 
subsequent invocations works fine.

Not sure what is going on, needs more investigation.
