I may be missing something since this seems like an obvious bug:
dbus_bus_get() docs claim it returns a reference. However, you can't
possibly call unref() because you can only call unref() on a connection
if you either a) know it's been disconnected or b) know you don't have
the only outstanding ref to it. For dbus_bus_get() these are more or
less impossible right now.
The obvious simple hello world prints warnings:
connection = dbus_bus_get();
/* do stuff */
NetworkManager seems to have as a workaround only unref'ing on the
Obviously I messed this up in the first place but it seems pretty lame
to me now.
I think the right fix is to leave dbus_bus_get() returning a ref, but
have it also hold a strong ref internally instead of a weak ref. Then
you can know it's safe to unref this connection since the
internal-to-dbus strong ref is held until it's disconnected.
