Description Will Thompson 2012-08-30 02:11:35 UTC
If there's no session bus, hitting “Record a new log” crashes Bustle.

Reproduce by running:

> DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS= cabal-dev/bin/bustle

It crashes with:

> bustle: user error (wrapNewGObject: object is NULL)

This is presumably because bustle_pcap_monitor_new returns NULL if connecting to the bus fail? But I wrapped the call in propagateGError, so it's not clear why it gets as far as wrapNewGObject crashing. (monitorNew in Bustle/Monitor.hs)
