I have a hand-started dbus-daemon run from my test program using 
QProcess. So far I'm using "dbus-daemon --session --print-address" on 
Linux. Just trying to run that command in two different cmd prompts on 
Windows, I see that the second one fails with "Failed to start message 
bus: Address 'autolaunch' already used". If I add 
"--adress=tcp:host=localhost,port=0" like you suggest I can start 
multiple. Thanks for that important little detail!

Yep, I'm already using this.

Great help on this mailing list. Thanks :-)
