i'm probably missing something here, since i never had to worry about different dbus sessions using ssh forwarding. what i do to get KDE (or other) apps to execute remotely, is connect from a user console via "ssh -X <user-name>@<server-name|IP addr.>. this gives me X-forwarding from the user account. in order to remotely execute apps. as root, i have to first copy ~/.Xauthority from the (remote) user account to (remote) /root, then that works as well.
