Your backtrace doesn't help us.

dbus_malloc doesn't call writev.

D-Bus doesn't use pipes for IPC, but local sockets. The semantics are very 
similar. In special, trying to write to a socket whose reading end has 
closed will generate SIGPIPE.

However, the D-Bus daemon doesn't close the socket unless the application 
has sent an invalid message. Therefore, if you're getting a SIGPIPE *and* 
the cause is D-Bus closing its socket, verify that your binding isn't 
sending an invalid message.

It's more likely that the issue isn't D-Bus.
