Title:
  emacs data-provider should handle dbus errors

Status in Zeitgeist Data-Providers:
  Confirmed

Bug description:
  My screen-based emacs's DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS environment variable
  got superceded, and though emacs was fine and could open frames in the
  new session, it was very naughty about opening, saving, and closing
  files/buffers because the dbus-call-method in zeitgeist.el was
  failing.

  This patch reduces the annoyance a bit:
