My guess is that its a permission problem: D-Bus by default on Windows
uses unix sockets (fills up your temp directory with those pesky files :
- -)

In Cygwin the temp directory has the sticky permission (t), but the
socket file created by the server most likely doesn't have access for
anybody else.

Check those permissions to maybe get a clue.

The problem comes from upstream, I'm just not sure because I used to
build my own, patched, version of DBUS (for a workaround which is to
use tcp, not unix sockets... but the Windows maintainer says "nobody
uses tcp sockets on Windows", and then they "improved" security which
is why I suspect access permissions).
