reloading dbus-daemon configuration does not affect existing connections' ACLs

Start with a default install. Add a configuration file to allow dbus monitoring as described here:
Have dbus reload its configuration either by 'sudo reload dbus' or 'service messagebus reload'. After this the new setting should be in effect but it's not. To verify, do this:
dbus-monitor --system (as root)
Then as non-root use d-feet go to call e.g. NetworkManager /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager org.freedesktop.NetworkManager state(). This call should show up in the monitor dump but it does not. Only calls made by root processes show up.
To get monitoring working you need to reboot.
