This is intended to be started after I login.  If d-bus isn't before I 
login, then obviously I need to move it to someplace thats run after 
I've logged in.

Where would that be? Someplace inside ~Desktop? but its empty now.

But I am using trinity, so maybe ~.trinity/Autostart?  Its also empty.

The point is that all this worked flawlessly on wheezy. d-bus was 
apparently running by the time the login popped up.

Thanks for any good ideas, Reco
