Message when starting emacs as root

User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/23.2 (gnu/linux)

When I start Emacs as root –from the command line–, I get the
following message:
    (emacs:3279): GLib-WARNING **: In call to g_spawn_sync(), exit
    status of a child process was requested but SIGCHLD action was set
    to SIG_IGN and ECHILD was received by waitpid(), so exit status
    can't be returned. This is a bug in the program calling
    g_spawn_sync(); either don't request the exit status, or don't set
    the SIGCHLD action.

    GConf Error: Failed to contact configuration server; the most
    common cause is a missing or misconfigured D-Bus session bus
    daemon. See for information.
    (Details -  1: Failed to get connection to session: Abnormal
    program termination spawning command line `dbus-launch
    --autolaunch=609bb989b7d80a921f5561274aef47bc --binary-syntax
    --close-stderr': )

As a non root user I do not get it. It happens since I updated to
openSUSE 10.4, which also update Emacs. I now use:
    GNU Emacs 23.2.1 (i586-suse-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.22.1) of 2011-02-22 
on build27
