I have just tried to update the dbus package from testing and have seen
two problems.

1) I had to issue "kill -9 `cat /opt/csw/var/run/dbus/pid`" during the
pkgrm of the old dbus package (when it says "Disabling
svc:/system/cswdbus ..."), not before. Doing it before just made SMF
start cswdbus again.

2) After having the new version installed the service doesn't come up
any more. From /var/svc/log/system-cswdbus:default.log

[ Jul 22 10:40:07 Executing start method

# pkginfo -x CSWdbus
CSWdbus  dbus - DBus Message Bus System
         (i386) 1.2.12,REV=2009.07.15

The whole upgrade console log can be found at [1].
