I've started the session bus via dbus-launch in advance, of course. I
have no idea, how to start the system bus in cygwin, 'though.

Emacs' D-Bus code shall be resistent in case of absence of a bus, but
who knows ... how could I debug it via gdb? Or, alternatively, how could
I start the system bus?
