However, it hasn't fixed the problem with gnome-session failing to start - I'm still getting the 'operation not permitted' on 'launch_msg( checkin )', and the Xserver keeps on failing and restarting until I change the name of the .x11init.d folder to something else.

I believe this is actually a problem with gnome-session in particular.
It sounds like it is trying to start a dbus itself with dbus-launch,
which it does not need to do because launchd will handle that

I don't know enough about gnome-session to suggest a fix or workaround.
