Does anyone have an idea why the session bus seems to be available from a regular shell but not from cron?
Because the environment variable "DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS" is set in a
regular shell, but not from cron.
Shouldn't this be considered a bug? What I was trying to do doesn't seem like a weird use case so I believe it should be possible to use DBus from cron like that.

And what if your session isn't running or you are running more than one
session?  Which bus does the cron job attach to?

Good point. Maybe I have to look into writing a little reminder applet for the panel.
