Sure, that's really a trivial workaround on a desktop box...

$ sudo apt-get remove dbus

Are you sure you're using Ubuntu? :D

[jaunty] Xephyr fails with D-Bus AccessDenied

Status in “xorg-server” package in Ubuntu: Triaged

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.
