gnome.org?? Who would have figured that? Sorry but that's far from
obvious for me ;-)

Ok, that did the trick and it was just a very stupid mistake (wrong
But I did notice a couple of things along the way that might be worth
a) verbose output - is it explained anywhere what you have to do to get
verbose output? I had to look into the code to find that I had to set
DBUS_VERBOSE besides the configure option. (NB: would patches adding a
--verbose option to the tools be accepted?)
b) dbus-monitor - I tried to use the monitor to see if my server/emitter
was actually sending something and it doesn't seem to do anything
usefull if this patch:
applied. The monitor seems to really need a match rule for it to be able
to work because without it I have never seen it generate any output. Is
there a reason why this patch has never been applied to CVS?
Cheers and thanks for your help!
