Bug Description

I'm not sure if it's bug in upstart or libdbus, but (2) points to upstart, I see only two issues:

1. 100% CPU usage of the daemon

2. `upstart-udev-bridge --daemon` running as pid 472 floods /dev/null with following messages according to strace:

write(2, "process 472: ", 13) = 13
write(2, "arguments to dbus_message_iter_append_basic() were incorrect, assertion \"_dbus_check_is_valid_utf8 (*string_p)\" failed in file ../../dbus/dbus-message.c line 2534.\nThis is normally a bug in some application using the D-Bus library.\n", 232) = 232

and strace shows nothing else.

gdb backtrace samples are useless due to lack of debug symbols and I see no upstart-dbg package to get them.
