Having trouble getting peer-to-peer dbus working

I can get the server listening successfully (at least no errors result  
from dbus_server_listen).  I have it listening on unix:path=/tmp/my_ipc.

The problem is from the client which tries to connect using a  
DBusConnection to that address - I get an assert error:

process 20911: arguments to dbus_message_new_method_call() were  
incorrect, assertion "destination == NULL ||  
_dbus_check_is_valid_bus_name (destination)" failed in file dbus- 
message.c line 1073.

I'm sure I'm missing something really obvious or I'm being really  
thick, but I haven't been able to find any hints in the documentation  
or on the web.

Also, on a side note, the only examples of how to use the dbus server  
utilize the GLib wrappers - is there a way to do without like there is  
with regular DBusConnections?
