The backport is easy; I created a patch and you can see it in

This bug has been there for a while, so as I understand it the
fix normally would wait until the next version since we're in a
freeze.  But if the bug has become more annoying recently perhaps
there's enough justification for putting the fix into emacs-24.

This is obviously up to Stefan and Chong. I can't honestly say the bug has become more annoying recently. It's been annoying for a long time, and I was very glad that you fixed it.

In my experience, the bug only shows up if I start emacs without a D-Bus daemon running. I suspect most GNU/Linux users always have a daemon running when they start emacs under X, so they aren't aware of the bug. The reason for my request that you backport the fix is that I've been thinking ahead to the release of emacs-24.3 for the Cygwin distribution. Cygwin users are probably not accustomed to starting a D-Bus daemon, so I will need to do something.

If Stefan and Chong decide that the fix should not be backported, I'll probably just apply the fix locally to my Cygwin build.
