Bug Description

webbrowser-app 0.22+13.10.20131007.2-0ubuntu1 added this:

  [ Alexandre Abreu ]
  * Handle URL open requests and expose a org.freedesktop.Application
    interface on DBUS. (LP: #1230404)

From irc:
12:53 < jdstrand> alex-abreu: it seems that webbrowser-app is exposing a dbus
                  interface. I am seeing an apparmor denial in the twitter
                  webapp: Oct 9 17:49:56 ubuntu-phablet dbus[1513]:
                  apparmor="DENIED" operation="dbus_method_call" bus="session"
                  path="/org/freedesktop/DBus" interface="org.freedesktop.DBus"
                  member="RequestName" mask="send" name="org.freedesktop.DBus"
12:53 < jdstrand> alex-abreu: should webapps be listening on that or just the
                  global browser?
12:54 < alex-abreu> mmh
12:54 < alex-abreu> on webbrowser-app
12:54 < alex-abreu> only
12:54 < alex-abreu> I'll push a fix
