DBus threading question

In the C++ binding, the "dispatcher.leave()" merely sets a global "exit" flag that's checked in a while loop somewhere else. So, this call is safe from a signal handler. Can you offer any answers to my other questions?
Thanks. . .

By signal handler, I had meant the function called when you receive a signal
Not Unix signals. You're definitely not allowed to use libdbus-1 from a Unix
signal handler. There's a very, very small list of system calls that you're
allowed to do from a signal handler.
Usually, the only operation you can have is to write to a pipe.
