Bug Description

Currently, when Checkbox fails to connect to the DBus backend, all tests are skipped because eval'ing the registry just returns False. Instead, the behavior should be that only tests or registries needing to run as a particular user such as root should be skipped.

The fix should also include recovering gracefully when dbus is not even running.
