Hmm I wonder if this test ever passed :)

Apparently, the test-dbus-glib is waiting for a "Foo" signal to be
emitted by test-service. But the gproxy delivers signals only when the
incoming message match the same (service, path, interface) triplet
than what was set when the proxy is created. 

Here the proxy is created for the
"org.freedesktop.DBus.TestSuiteEchoService" service but when the
signal message arrives, it has the base service in its sender header.
So, no match, no signal.

It should work with dbus_gproxy_new_for_service_owner but it's not
implemented yet !
