Package: policycoreutils-sandbox
Version: 2.5-2
Severity: normal
Tags: upstream

As described in <https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2016/08/msg00554.html>
I'm trying to reduce how much dbus-launch is used in Debian.
This package currently wraps a user-specified shell command in
"dbus-launch --exit-with-session %s", which is a deprecated usage
and does not terminate the resulting dbus-daemon when the wrapped
command exits.

The preferred way to do this is to wrap the command in dbus-run-session,
like this pseudo-patch:

-dbus-launch --exit-with-session %s
+dbus-run-session -- %s

This ensures that the temporary dbus-daemon terminates when the wrapped
command does.
