Bug Description

I'm using Ubuntu 13.10 dev with dbus 1.6.10-0ubuntu1. After upgrading my system from Ubuntu 13.04 I noticed a little difference. The initial state of my system in both versions is:

user messagebus has the process "dbus-daemon --system --fork"
After login with LXDM:
user sworddragon has the processes "/usr/bin/dbus-launch --exit-with-session startlxde" and "//bin/dbus-daemon --fork --print-pid 5 --print-address 7 --session"

Now the difference: In Ubuntu 13.10 dev if I'm opening an instance with gksu (commonly over my filemanager) and launching then as root any process over it (a terminal or a text editor) the extra processes "dbus-launch --autolaunch 9094559992195ef86eb1309350dced31 --binary-syntax --close-stderr" and "//bin/dbus-daemon --fork --print-pid 5 --print-address 7 --session" are spawned. In Ubuntu 13.04 both of these processes never appeared. So I'm assuming they are maybe not needed there and some breaking has forced them to appear after this action.
