Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: evince

Here's what I did:

ssh -X secondu...@localhost
evince myfile.pdf

ie, after logging in as a different user, I launch evince.  It does not fully 
die (ie it stays in the foreground / I don't get my prompt back), but no window 
comes up and I get:

Failed to get bus connection: Command line `dbus-launch
--autolaunch=<some hexy code here> --binary-syntax --close-stderr'
exited with non-zero exit status 1: EOF in dbus-launch reading address
from bus daemon\n

(where I've removed some hexy code in case it's private).

Other applications like xterm and acroread launch just fine.
