Reply half-received ?

Thanks !

For the second question, it's ok, they were NameAcquired, as you said.

But, for the first problem, a very strange thing appears:
So now, my function is:

	printf("Hey... Here is a job for me! ");
	DBusMessage *reply;

	reply = dbus_message_new_method_return(message);
	const char *v_STRING;
	v_STRING = "Hello World";
	dbus_message_append_args (reply,

	dbus_connection_send (bus_conn, reply, NULL);
	dbus_message_unref (reply);
	dbus_connection_flush (bus_conn);
	printf("reply sent.\n");

and the result:

unknown message received: ServiceAcquired
unknown message received: ServiceAcquired
Hey... Here is a job for me! reply sent.
unknown message received: Disconnected

I didn't change anything else in the client....

and the client, of course....:

Failed to get current song: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by
message bus)

very strange.....
