I wouldn't. Maemo-specific patches should be left in Maemo's tree, including 
its changes to the config file.

Agreed. But given my comment above, this means the patch would stay in Maemo's

See above.

D-Bus 1.3 also uses MSG_NOSIGNAL, but that's Linux-specific.

No idea either, though on Maemo I don't see how autolaunch works or how the 
bus is found anyway. My tests indicate I always connect to the bus, even when 
connecting as a separate user, via ssh.

Hmm... if we read the file while it's in-flight, shouldn't we get a new 
notification from the filesystem when it's changed again? Won't we read the file 
again at that time?

If that's the case, I'd say just quickly skip any malformed files and don't 
cause any ill-effects -- unless the bus is starting, in which case it should 
complain and refuse to start.
