Hm, I'm using OM2008, and I was (at work right now, so I can't check) 
seeing dbus events from pushing AUX. I couldn't figure out offhand which 
daemon taking them and pushing up the "LOCKED" message on the screen.

If they're not going through dbus, which daemons on 2008 are responsible 
for processing button presses?
