If you look in ~/ you should have a full traceback explaining
the problem.

I would suspect that either there is a library problem to do with
dbus, or you are e.g. running in an environment that looks like it
should have dbus running but it's not actually reachable.

dbus is a publish/subscribe service used by gnome (and kde?) and is
used to communicate from bzr to some gui tools.
