Could trace it down on Ubuntu's DBus 1.4.6 a little bit further: when
running a dbus_connection_read_write()-loop, a segmentation fault can
occur right at "dbusMsg=dbus_connection_pop_message(conn);" [one time a
runtime message "process 3964: type unknown 255 not a basic type" was
issued] or the errors "org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply" or it works
(appr. in one out of ten attempts).
