How long did it wait for the reply before giving you the error?

Was it 25 seconds? If so, then the other side sent you no reply. Check 
with dbus-monitor if that is the case or if you did not get a reply.

Was it immediate? If so, make sure that you are running your program under 
the same UID as your *session* bus (not the system bus).

Failing that, post the strace for your program or for a typical dbus 
program that is failing (like dbus-send, dbus-monitor or qdbus).
