I see this too, but it seems like a bug in system-tools-backends to me.
I first started seeing this message when s-t-b was fixed due to
CVE-2008-4311, so I think the dbus system.d config just isn't right.
There's an explicit <deny
send_destination="org.freedesktop.SystemToolsBackends"/> in there,
which is specifically what e.g. nautilus is calling.

If I add <allow send_destination="org.freedesktop.SystemToolsBackends"
send_interface="org.freedesktop.SystemToolsBackends" send_member="get"
send_type="method_call"/> to the default policy
in /etc/dbus-1/system.d/system-tools-backends.conf, it looks like I
don't get the message anymore. Is this a correct fix?
