Bug Description

I am using the 12.10 beta and noticed that after the updates released with the kernel and the restart, I always have one core fully utilized by dbus-daemon. I am using xfce.

I've just hit the same issue upon a latest batch of updates.
When I restarted OS upon the update and logged in, one of my two cores is at 100 % CPU.

Used SW:
Ubuntu 12.10 beta1 amd64
kernel: 3.5.0-15-generic #20-Ubuntu SMP
dbus: 1.6.4-1ubuntu1
xubuntu-desktop: 2.160

With 12.10 BETA 2, this is the ps -ef | grep dbus-daemon I have

I do not like this UID 108 without a name .... is this a security issue ?
