Sure sounds like a bug.  Programs shouldn't be accessing the home
directory of root.  If it really needs that directory, it
should be under another directory, maybe /run, not root.  I think you
should open a bugzilla against dbind, even if it isn't the actual cause,
showing the warning message, and mention the other programs that it
appears with.

Of course, at-spi is kind of suggestive, spi == spy?, so maybe this is
an exploit.  Is there anything in the journal when this happens?  Try
journalctl -r
immediately after the message occurs (journal in reverse order), to
look at recent messages.
