OK, found it - the machine was originaly a copy of the first one. I've 
copied also /var/lib. This causes both machines to have the same dbus 
machine-id as if ID exist in /var/lib/dbus/ it is never regenerated. On 
ssh -Y the dbus-launch --autolaunch ends/is not started as it thinks this 
is the same machine (my explanation). This was a tough one. Just looking 
forward to another...
