Session Bus working, Gentoo GDM patch and Xscreensaver jay'ness

signal interface=com.eikke.DesktopEventNotification; member=XScreensaverEvent; sender=:1.58
signal interface=com.eikke.DesktopEventNotification; member=XScreensaverEvent; sender=:1.58

Next to this, I got my session bus working thanks to the nice guys on the DBUS mailing list, Ross' IBM article and some custom hacking.

Now my session bus is started when I log in, patch for GDM's Xsession file submitted into the Gentoo Bugzilla

Next task: simple DBUS listener to test the Xscreensaver notification stuff, and write the Gaim plugin.

DBUS test listener is done:

Event received: ScreensaverStarted
Event received: ScreensaverStopped

- Gaim plugin (get DBUS inside Gaim's Glib mainloop)
- Daemonize the event submitter
