It's not gwibber, it's dbus that is in trouble. I'd be surprised if gwibber was the only service having problems.

You could do some detective work like see that dbus-daemon is running and active with dbus-monitor or you could try the somewhat more risky:

sudo apt-get purge libdbus-1-3 dbus
sudo apt-get install libdbus-1-3 dbus

I'm still finding Lucid a little less than robust, but I've not seen dbus fail.
