Ok - let's try this backwards...
I'm usign Debian Sarge 3.1r1, Kernel 2.6.8-2-386 (*Stable*) -- and
"Sid" is considered *Unstable*, so it just may be a Bug...IOW, expect
some issues with apps/etc.

I don't see how d-bus, nor hald are playing a role in this, unless you
mean the DCOP Server(?) which is part of KDE -- but just in case you
mean D-Bus see below;

* Are you running (either/or Epiphany, or the OS, or Both?) from a USB
Keychain or an External Drive perhaps? (Tell us more about your Setup).

* I have all all those settings I mentioned and many more in Epiphany;
See here (Filtered via "browser.tab");
Note - what controls many of these settings in Moz/FF and Epiphany are
User.js(which I can't find for Epiphany) -- and PREFS.JS (which exists
here on this box)

Perhaps you also run Moz/FF, ...and Epiph is using it's/their Config
Settings (Prefs.js _AND_ User.js for Config) -- these files usually
live beneath $HOME/$User/.mozilla (or maybe called .firefox) and then
deeper--> /default/xxxxxxxx.slt/
Somewhere in that PATH may be a /.profile subDir
(Notice the Dirs with the  leading ' . ' -- this designates a .hidden
Dir or File)
View and Edit these files (Prefs.js and User.js) with any Text Editor.

* Have you gone into Epiphany's Edit | Preferences | and on the
"Privacy Tab" done this?
And while I agree (compared to FF/Moz) the _amount_ of
choices/preferences are Slim -- that's what helps it be so very
f-a-s-t.... And changes are in Real-time AFAICT.

* Have you installed any/all Dependencies?

 --- On to the D-cop stuff ---

I issued this command just now;

$ sudo /etc/init.d/dbus-1 stop
Stopping Hardware abstraction layer: hald.
Stopping system message bus: dbus-1.

I tracked dbus stuff using this command;
$ locate dbus
and then it's just from sorting and checking files ...and knowing
/etc/init.d is the main startup/stopping script Dir -- but more info
about dbus can be found in various places as seen from checking out the
various files returned from issuing above command

BTW - I also checked my various /var/log/ files for any pertitnent info
about hald and dbus, but even the syslogs don't have much to say

So -- also run 
$ ps aux

I still think you're barking up the wrong tree - since I've had
External links open New Windows (which means a new *Instance* of the
browser (not tabs) in whatever browser I was using - and the fix was to
Stop *that* external URL loading from doing that via Forcing any new
"browser instance" to open in a Tab instead
