I plan to switch the DBus system bus away from the "permissive"
release to the one which closes
relatively soon in the Fedora 11 tree.

I've been going through bugzillas and getting policies upstream for a
while, and I think the vast majority of things are fixed now.  The
permissive mode has been in rawhide for some time, and will have been
generating messages of the form:

    Feb  2 12:17:38 space-ghost dbus: Rejected send message, 20
matched rules; type="method_return", sender=":1.19" (uid=0 pid=2863
comm="/usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wp")
interface="(unset)" member="(unset)" error name="(unset)"
requested_reply=0 destination=":1.18" (uid=0 pid=2852
comm="NetworkManager --pid-file=/var/run/NetworkManager/"))

in syslog.  If you're seeing these and I didn't find your bugzilla,
and don't know how to fix, please ask for help at
dbus at lists.freedesktop.org or #dbus on Freenode.
