I recently updated to Debian 10 x64 and tried to open local html file
with surf. But when I do this I get the following error:

$ surf info.html

(surf:24332): IBUS-WARNING **: 15:06:50.866: Unable to load
/var/lib/dbus/machine-id: Failed to open file
“/var/lib/dbus/machine-id”: Permission denied Error receiving IPC
message on socket 20 in process 24340: Connection reset by peer

When I check the permissions to the mentioned file, then I see that it
should not be a problem to read it as all users has read permission:

$ ls -l /var/lib/dbus/machine-id
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 33 Apr 27 13:38 /var/lib/dbus/machine-id

$ surf -v
surf-2.0, see LICENSE for © details

So what might be a problem?
