The message above seems to come from socket_set_epoll_add (https://dbus.freede
sktop.org/doc/api/html/dbus-socket-set-epoll_8c_source.html#l00137) where
epoll_ctl sets errno to EINVAL which means self->epfd is not an epoll file

I tried running dbus-launch through strace -f -D to investigate a bit more why
epoll_ctl returns EINVAL but unfortunately that makes the problem disappear.

Any help appreciated…
