Eavesdrop and configuration files...

I'm trying to do some timing debugging and I need to eavesdrop all
method calls and returns on the system bus. I haven't been able to
come up with a config policy that will work. I'm running dbus-monitor
as root and have tried the following config:
<allow send_destination="*" eavesdrop="true"/>
<allow eavesdrop="true" send_requested_reply="false"/> --
also tried this, but didn't expect it to work
<allow eavesdrop="true" receive_requested_reply="false"/> --
added this after scanning source code
What policy configuration do I need to make this work?
At this point I've commented out the following in policy.c :
/* for allow, requested_reply=true means the rule applies
* only when reply was requested. requested_reply=false means
* always allow.
if (!requested_reply && rule->allow && rule->d.send.requested_reply &&
_dbus_verbose (" (policy) skipping allow rule since it only applies
to requested replies and does not allow eavesdropping\n");
At which point I can monitor method reply messages. I'd really like to
be able to do this without modifying the code. I assume that there
must be a policy that will allow me to do this.
