I posted too soon. It turns out that in my case the error was a red-herring. I loaded a backed up VM without the latest Ubuntu updates and I am able to log in fine even though the syslog still contains the error:
CRITICAL: Unable to create a DBus proxy for GnomeScreensaver: Error calling StartServiceByName for org.gnome.ScreenSaver: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ChildExited: Process org.gnome.ScreenSaver exited with status 1

This clearly isn't the root cause of my missing login screen.
