deny send_destination policy also blocking signals ?

  When debugging a problem with NetworkManager on debian (or rather why a
  certian work-around fixed the problem) we encountered a strange issue.

  As most of you will know NM listens on the system bus to hal signal to detect
  device additions and removals. For some reason it never got those signals
  though. Now NM also registers a service on the system bus and the policy for
  that service is to only allow a certain set of users to send messages to it
  (depending on your distribution)
  Now it seems that the policy for send_destination=<network manager service>
  is also applied to signals coming from hal (which don't have a specific 
  destination)..  Which is kinda weird and unwanted imho..
