Spawning dbus-daemon & dbus-launch from xfce4-terminal

Hi folks,

Mythbuntu disks include a last step during the ubiquity run that calls upon



/usr/bin/x-terminal-emulator -e mythtv-setup.real

For gutsy this worked out fine, as it just launched xfce4-terminal.  In
testing Hardy in virtual machines, this isn't working as expected. 
xfce4-terminal is also spawning two more processes: dbus-daemon and
dbus-launch.  The unique thing about the situation is that this step is
run from a chroot with X support before the system is rebooted.  So if
these two processes are still running when its time to return to
ubiquity, ubiquity won't take control back (and it won't be able to
unmount the chroot)

Any ideas what has changed in xfce4-terminal that might be causing this
