@All:
After a lengthy process I was able to get this issue resolved. I am
requesting the following changes be made to OpenSuse 11.4. Very possibly the
second issue will need to be done to OS 12.x too.

+ Add Vincents patched dbus to the update channel. This allows for additional
file handles at the daemon level.

+ The following two lines should be added to /etc/security/limits.conf.
Otherwise the daemon is prohibited by PAM to allocate additional file handles:

messagebus soft nofile 8192
messagebus hard nofile 65535


While this won't happen in a single user computer, it happens very easily on a
multi-user server. OpenSuse denies logins right around 95 users without this
change.

Thanks Vincent!
