Interesting. Then the manpage is lying:
Use the standard configuration file for the systemwide message bus.
>From my reading of that, --system isn't needed to run a system-wide
broker if you pass it an alternate config file with the configs needed
to run as a system-wide broker. Either way, --system is generally
needed to have dbus do the right thing for overall system tasks.
