Basically the only environment variables you can expect when you've been
started by dbus is DBUS_* and the various early set environment variables
(LANG, PATH, etc).. When you've been started by a session daemon for an X
session, you can expect DISPLAY to be set correctly too..
For everything else you will need some other way to recover them. In seahorse's
case, it should implement some D-Bus api to recover the socket paths that you'd
normally get from the GPG_AGENT_INFO and SSH_AUTH_SOCK environment variables.
Death is nature's way of telling you to slow down.
