Hi Kevin, thanks for the reply.

I ran a small bash script from .desktop file which
contains following code:

if [ -z "$DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS" ]; then
   eval `/usr/bin/dbus-launch --auto-syntax

The --exit-with-session says close the dbus-launch
once session is closed.

When I run the bash script manually using Konsole, the
dbus-launch daemon is available till the Konsole is
closed. The moment the Knsole is closed dbus-launch
daemon is also automatically closed. 

Regarding logs, sadly no entry in logs at all.
