Yeah, I'd agree the patch looks a little confused here... the property
is called "manager" but is passed a DBusGConnection in most places, and
when it's set, it finds and stores the manager via a slot on the
DBusConnection. Conversely, when you get the "manager" property, you do
get the manager. I'd go for a "connection" property which was a
DBusGConnection, and when it's set, find and store the manager in the
current way, then you can implement the get using
DBUS_G_CONNECTION_FROM_CONNECTION on priv->manager->connection.

I spoke to Ricardo on IRC, the 2nd version of the patch he just posted
does this.
