Wow, that was stupid! Thanks for the reply anyway. All I really want to 
do is set up a dbus handler for asynchronous signals and be able to send 
signals from another program...I stole an easy example from here:


but I can't seem get to the callback function when I send a signal from 
another dbus program. I tried this for starters:

dbus-send --type=signal --session --dest=org.freedesktop.DBus 
/org/freedesktop/DBus org.DBusTest.SignalTest string:"NameLost"

but I can't figure out why this wouldn't work? Any suggestions?
