.X.d seems to work well now - thanks:
Code: [Select]
$ cat ~/.X.d/dbus
dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session

$ startx

$ ps aux | grep dbus
 1147 tc       dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session
 1148 tc       /usr/local/bin/dbus-daemon --fork --print-pid 5 --print-address 7 --session
 1183 tc       grep dbus

..and curiously, order doesn't seem to matter when another file for ConsoleKit is added
