Default dbus error for newly created user

I also have problems with dbus, but for newly created user on the system. My initial account on PCBSD 9.2 started vith p7, upgraded to p8:
[helix@pcbsd] ~% uname -a
FreeBSD 9.2-RELEASE-p8 FreeBSD 9.2-RELEASE-p8 #0:
On first login, error for new user looks like this "Could not start D-Bus. Can you call qdbus":

After clicking OK, you are redirected to login screen. After waiting for a moment in this screen with error, first wizzard is displayed thou. Also a popup window with Lifepreserver shows up:

I also figured out it is a permission problem, so as root from initial account did:
# cd /home/newuser
# chown -R newuser:newuser .dbus
Login went smooth after that

Edit: This applies only for users who have enabled "Can administer this system"
