I could reproduce it under Windows event with two thread (i.e. THREADS
== 1 in echo-client). I'll try under Linux...

Can I have more info on this ? Is there a bug report somewhere ? Ideas
to fix it ?

Thanks a lot for your help. And by the way, good thing to have added
_init_threading() wrapping to dbus_thread_init_default(), I had done
this locally and had planned to push the modif back to you but never
had time for it ;)
