I see, you're talking signals and not method calls, so sender/receiver 
are backward from normal.

Anyhow... REPLY_IN_QUEUE should simply mean another copy of your app is 
already running. If you filter signals on a bus name like this, then 
only one app at a time can own the bus name and send signals that will 
be received.

If you want multiple apps to be able to signal, just take the bus name 
out of the picture. Don't have the signaling apps request a name, and 
don't include a name in the signal matching for the receiver.
