That's correct, however the function is broken in 0.33; it is fixed in

There's one in the patch to the GLib bindings I sent to the list
Wednesday.  Here's the code snippet:

  if (!dbus_message_iter_open_container (iter,
    goto out;

  /* TODO - This assumes that basic values are the same size
   * is this always true?  If it is we can probably avoid
   * a lot of the overhead in _marshal_basic_instance...
  if (!dbus_message_iter_append_fixed_array (&subiter,
    goto out;

  if (!dbus_message_iter_close_container (iter, &subiter))
    goto out;
