Hi Markus -

If I recall this bug was fixed in the "unofficial" variant:

git clone git://gitorious.org/dbus-cplusplus/mainline.git

Also, there exists another branch here that doesn't exhibit this bug


As you can see the D-Bus C++ binding has more or less forked into three
branches. The "official" branch (as stated in the D-Bus bindings page)
is probably the oldest and suffering the most from bit-rot.

I found in the introspect that using a struct in struct lets
dbusxx-xml2cpp compiler generate uncompilable code. E. g.

<property name="x"    type="(qq(qq))" access="readwrite"/> would
generate in the adapter interface something like:

::DBus::PropertyAdaptor< ::DBus::Struct< uint16_t, uint16_t,
::DBus::Struct< uint16_t, uint16_t >, > > x;

The g++ compiler would not like ">, > >"

Work around is not to use the last component for struct in struct, i.e.
use (q(qq)q) or ((qq)qq) instead.
