So you'd think, but in fact dbus-glib just fires them off with the ignore-reply
flag and hopes they'll work; it's not as if we'd be able to recover from them
failing, so that seems fair really.

(Alban, were you using the dbus-glib patch from to only bind to individual
signals, or the traditional one-match-per-interface behaviour? 59% does seem
like a lot.)
