Bug#510324: release-notes: Upgrades of Desktop systems should not happen from within X11

Package: release-notes
Severity: normal

Due to #495257, the user's desktop session will crash/freeze/misbehave if the
dbus package is upgraded while they are logged in.

The release notes should recommend that GNOME users (and users of KDE and other
desktop environments that use dbus) log out, then login on tty1, and perform
the upgrade from a text-mode console in order to avoid problems.
