If you sent invalid UTF-8, an invalid boolean whose value is neither 0 nor
1 or other malformed data, yes, this can happen. My patches on

_dbus_return_if_fail rather than silently allowing it.

Are you using threads? If so, I'm afraid you get to debug them; libdbus is
theoretically thread-safe, and has what appears to be appropriate locking,
but various threading problems have been reported.
