I can reproduce the problem on Ubuntu 13.04.
Apparently when you start up a GTK Emacs session
that can't talk to dbus (because it's su'ed), the dbus library
starts up its own service, using dbus-launch.
This messes up Emacs somehow (I don't know why).

It's probably worth filing a new bug report for this.  A possible
workaround is to launch your own dbus service before invoking
Emacs, though I haven't tried this.
