Hm, works for me. Can you please open the guest session, a Terminal window, and copy&paste the output of

  ls -l /etc/alternatives/x-session-manager

here it is:

guest@macbook:~$ echo $GDMSESSION
guest@macbook:~$ ls -l /etc/alternatives/x-session-manager

/etc/alternatives/x-session-manager -> /usr/bin/gnome-session

Oh, I know. You have notification-daemon installed, and /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.freedesktop.Notifications.service doesn't check for the "guest-restricted" session. This needs to be fixed there.
