Hey Marcel,

Thanks for reporting the problem. I have just released atd-over-fso 
0.70-r1 including D-Bus security policy file
/etc/dbus-1/system.d/atd-over-fso.conf which should fix the problem.

After putting this file into your Debian system you have to run
/etc/init.d/dbus reload
and it should start properly.

atd-over-fso, as framoworkd works on the system bus, so DISPLAY has no effect.

See above.

I also hope it will :). Packaging for Debian is next on may TODO list,
I hope to find some time for that next week.
