Bleachbit won't start as root


I'm having problems getting Bleachbit 0.8.7 to start under my root account. Every time I try to start it I get this:

[root@Jonquil jonquil]# bleachbit
g_dbus_connection_real_closed: Remote peer vanished with error: Underlying GIOStream returned 0 bytes on an async read (g-io-error-quark, 0). Exiting.

Can anyone help me get this resolved? It was never an issue in the past....

1. Upgrade to BleachBit 0.9.0 (not specifically known to help but shouldn't hurt)
2. Does it with with a non-root account?
3. Does it with from a non-root account with sudo or gksu?
4. Which distribution of Linux and which version? Ubuntu 11.04?
