A good question. The 'connection address' of the session bus is an
environment variable, usually setup by Xsession. So all programs run
within one Xsession will connect to the session bus for that X session,
regardless of $USER.

In terms of remote applications, there is a plain TCP transport, and
when using this authentication happens by means of tokens in the users
home directory, so it should work fine in a thin client situation.
