The error messages you posted don't exactly match the ones I've seen,
but this is usually a problem with accessing dbus. Did you follow the
instructions when installing launchd to run:
  sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.freedesktop.dbus-system.plist
  launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist

Another possibility (which might only affect me): if you're running
gnucash within the "screen" program, it doesn't currently work; you
need to run it outside screen. (If you don't know what that means, it
doesn't affect you.)
