Can you explain this scenario a bit more? I don't fully understand what
happens in this case, I'd like to think about how we could address it.

Would the IN_PROGRESS dispatch status help? (so you would not queue up
things yourself, the dbus connection would just keep things in the queue
until dispatch was called non-recursively...)
