May be i missed something while reading the DBus docs but i can't figure what the 'guid' value associated with a BUS path (local or remote) is used for ...
[ like in : 'unix:path=/usr/local/var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket,guid=84b14345e4aaba5daf1651b672abbd00' ]

Could someone give my clues/hints/lights about the guid usage ?

Thanks in advance ! ;o)
