I have managed to reproduce this.

I can't immediately see there is a bug in what consolekit is doing. As you say,
there is no display device.

If you want to avoid the messages appearing in your logs, then I suggest the
following rsyslog configuration (or something similar to your taste).

% cat /etc/rsyslog.d/10-local.conf
:msg, contains, "cannot determine display-device" ~

That filters the messages for me.

Is that a solution for you?
