Bug Description

what should happen: onioncircuits connects to tor, displays information about active circuits
what does happen:

running onioncircuits only shows a window that says

"You are not connected to Tor yet..."

on the console:

** (onioncircuits:29111): WARNING **: Couldn't connect to accessibility bus: Failed to connect to socket /tmp/dbus-8CvdIryUHh: Permission denied
Unable to connect to tor. Are you sure it's running?

(onioncircuits:29111): GLib-GIO-CRITICAL **: g_dbus_proxy_new_sync: assertion 'G_IS_DBUS_CONNECTION (connection)' failed
Unable to connect to tor. Are you sure it's running?
Unable to connect to tor. Are you sure it's running?

...
(this message is repeated until I close onioncircuits)

* Various instances of tor seem to be running 'fine' - tor-browser, torchat, ricochet and a web browser connecting to localhost:9050 access tor just fine.
* User in question is a member of debian-tor.

Confirmed -- most likely related to AppArmor, will continue to investigate.
