Well, in theory they appear only when there is not enough memory. A 
simple possible explanation might be passing in some unintentionally 
huge array size or something like that. Or it could be a bug in libdbus, 
of course, but I don't know of one that would cause this. If you could 
somehow figure out which C function was reporting out of memory, it 
would be helpful.
