dbus and ssh connection

Sorry, this is a little bit off-topic, but I encountered this problem 
first on my FR, so maybe there is someone who can give me a pointer where 
I can do further research:

If I do an 'ssh remotehost' and run an application on 'remotehost' which 
does some dbus stuff, it seems that the dbus interface does not find the 
'right' SystemBus or whatever.
I have to use the local console (terminal on FR) to get proper results.

I have no idea how dbus finds out that I come from a remote connection and 
how I can avoid/fix this behaviour. It is not the DISPLAY env nor any 
SSH_* envs.

(As mention, the actual problem does not happen on a FR-related 
software but on a different project of my own).
