I'm not sure were the real problem happens in your log. The (EE)
messages are not fatal IIRC, I've been seeing them in working
environments. But please report this separately, I'd even expect it to
be specific to Sugar.

[jaunty] Xephyr fails with D-Bus AccessDenied

Status in “xorg-server” package in Ubuntu: Fix Committed

Bug description:
Running Xephyr from xserver-xephyr 2: fails with an error like:

[config/dbus] couldn't take over org.x.config: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.AccessDenied (Connection ":1.260" is not allowed to own the service "org.x.config.display2" due to security policies in the configuration file)

I suspect this is due to the recent D-Bus policy change, e.g. bug 318752.

It can be reproduced by running "Xephyr :2" in jaunty.
