After building the latest code from cvs I get a "No reply within
specified time" error 
This is at the library level because I get the same error from the mono
example, the python example and the test cases.
Any idea why this is?
(Incidentally, I built the code by copying the configure script from
dbus-0.31.tar.gz to the cvs directory since seems to be
screwing up on my system)
