You didn't give us enough information on what your needs are to give you a
proper solution. So I can only give you a generic one:
Replace your blocking calls with asynchronous calls. That is, send the
request over D-Bus and go back to your main loop event handler. That is,
into your select()-based loop. Whenever there's data available in the
D-Bus socket, you'll be notified and you can then (and only then) wake
up, tell DBusConnection to process the data and continue your execution.
No blocking, no threads.
