That is correct. That is the intended behaviour.

If the target application cannot be launched, then the message cannot be 
processed. The caller application will receive an error back.

You cannot. There is no such thing as queued messages. Either the target 
service name exists at the time the message is received by dbus-daemon, 
or the daemon knows how to start the service.
