Yes.

It doesn't matter, because D-Bus is an unconditional dependency of GNOME
Keyring.

We cannot expect that users will know these variables (especially what values

This warning is shown even for users which don't have access to X session.
(I tested by using Subversion in tty1, while X session was owned by another
user.)

After the aforementioned warning, Subversion asks if to store password in
plaintext form.
