This sounds like a library versions issue - if that's the case then any
application that is built against dbus 1.10.8 will fail to run properly
with dbus 1.10.10.

One way to check would be to try the packages in unstable; if they have
been rebuilt and work then dbus needs to be held out of stable until the
other packages catch up.
