There's more information for quodlibet's specific situation in https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=836054:

This Flatpak commit illustrates how eval dbus-launch can be replaced
by invoking dbus-daemon directly, avoiding the X11-specific dbus-launch:
flatpak/flatpak@6cc8062.
It is possible to send both the address and the pid to stdout
("--print-address=1 --print-pid=1") if that would be easier to do from
Python; their order is undocumented but predictable, and I don't intend
to break it in future D-Bus releases.

Alternatively, the test executable could be run through
dbus-run-session(1), which is available since dbus 1.8, the upstream
"old stable" branch available in Debian stable:

dbus-run-session -- some-test
