[avahi] Problems when avahi deamon is not startet on startup

I am currently trying around with avahi. My test client works, but only if the avahi daemon is already started when the test client starts.
I am passing the AVAHI_CLIENT_NO_FAIL flag, but no help.
I am watching the timeouts, avahi requests. When I start the test client with no avahi deamon running, the only timeout that remains is set to tv_sev=0 and tv_usec=0 (midnight?). This timeout of course is not called (for quite a while), so avahi has no chance of retrying to connect to the deamon.

Ist this behavior normal? Or what is wrong?
