I ended with broken Gnome session after doing update two days ago. I found this in messages.log:
dbus-daemon: dbus: [system] Rejected send message, 2 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.153" (uid=1002 pid=1902 comm="/usr/bin/gnom
e-shell ") interface="org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties" member="GetAll" error name="(unset)" requested_reply="0" destination=":1.10" (uid=0 pid=477 comm="/usr/sbin/console-kit-
daemon --no-daemon ")
gnome-session: WARNING: App 'gnome-shell.desktop' respawning too quickly
gnome-session: WARNING: Detected that screensaver has left the bus
Does anybody know what is the cause and how to fix it? Thanks
I am using systemd and Gnome 3.6

It seems your dbus is trying to use consolekit and that is not supported anymore. Did you uninstall consolekit or did it get uninstalled during an update already? Maybe check your /var/log/pacman.log to see what updated.

ConsoleKit is probably not the cause. I removed it now and it still fails to start but with little bit different log messages.
