  When the server tries to aquire the service, the
daemon exits. How to I tackle this situation having
all the security restrictions in place?

   There are some functions in dbus where we pass the
address of a pointer to some data structure and that
function allocates memory for this pointer. But, when
I access the elements of that structure in my code to
modify some element, I get compilation error
dereferencing pointer to incomplete type and if I try
to include that header file in my source file, I again
get compilation errors, only dbus.h is allowed to be
included. One example of such function is
dbus_connection_send_with_reply which takes
DBusPendingCall **pending_retur as an argument and
accessing reply element of  DBusPendingCall gives
compilation error. What is the reason behind this?
