>Release:        DragonFly 3.1-DEVEL  x86_64
>Organization:
>Environment:
DragonFly 3.1-DEVEL  x86_64
>Description:
On a Intel-based Shuttle SG45H7, ICH10, Radeon HD4550 graphics card, full meta-pkgs/gnome builds successfully both for DragonFly 3.1-DEVEL x86_64 and NetBSD 6.99.11 amd64.  However Gnome run using startx with .xinitrc consisting of the line
exec /usr/pkg/bin/gnome-session
launches into a satisfactory desktop only on NetBSD, whereas on DragonFly the screen simply remains black.

Launching using ssh from another machine, on NetBSD the normal output, after detection of the video card, reads:

Whereas on DragonFly one never sees the "Dac detection success" lines; instead getting output such as:

 Much of dbus 1.6.4nb1 functionality may be broken on DragonFly
 3.1-DEVEL x86_64.  From what I began to notice yesterday, launching
 Firefox from kde4, there is a warning box:

 "An error occurred while loading or saving configuration information
 for xulrunner. Some of your configuration settings may not work
 properly."

 with Details:

 Failed to contact configuration server; the most common cause is a
 missing or misconfigured D-Bus session bus daemon. See
 http://projects.gnome.org/gconf/ for information. (Details -  1:
