** Description changed:

  To reproduce:
  Fairly reliably reproducible with ubuntu-12.10-desktop-i386.iso or raring-desktop-i386.iso and choosing persitence on a 12.10/raring amd64 system.
  Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

  It seems to be that NULL is passed to _dbus_watch_invalidate. And that
  function does not assert it's input. In the past this caused to crash
  tomboy (bug #1043887), evalution-data-server (bug #852342) and possible
  other software (e.g. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=553601
  I'd like to open dbus bug and fix that function in dbus to be more
