Changing the object exporting and name request order as you said didn't change 
anything, but setting up objects first seems right. 

Our problem is perhaps about the qt3 binding we use. Binding's own DBus 
service example[1] has the same problem as ours when it is started via 
activation. (Changing the object setup and name request order does not fix 
the problem also.)
