The redhat guys poked me about this one, and I told them I have no idea. Bitlbee itself doesn't have anything dbus, so it's probably libpurple.

So ehhh, how are you starting it? xinetd?

Starting the bitlbee daemon / process.

Status: newclosed

Ok after some irc debugging, this turned out to be a selinux rule issue, so this issue belongs in the redhat bug tracker:
