According to the dbus-launch manpage I have here, the instructions at the 
given URL (the starting dbus ones) appear to do about the same thing, 
except that dbus instance should start and stop with the session, which 
is what's desired if you're doing it that way.  Why are they wrong?

Here's the (single) line they use (minus the echo to the ~/.xinitrc bit), 
reprinted here for comparison:

exec dbus-launch --exit-with-session startkde
