Could you try the following steps:

* check if there is a $DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS environnment variable
* if not, run dbus-launch. It outputs two environnement variable, please
set the session bus address (export
DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS='unix:abstract=/tmp/dbus-1WiVWpbJFg' for example)
* try to run xfce4-terminal from this terminal.

If it work, your dbus install is right, but dbus-launch isnt run when
you log in in gdm. Have you changed the init script (startxfce4) or
something else ?
