This sounds like a very likely explanation.  One problem that I've occasionally 
come across is that gdnc, or some other daemon that you connect to via DO, does 
not get restarted automatically when you update GNUstep, libobjc, or any other 
library (it has no way of knowing that you've installed a new library).  This 
can mean that apps at the opposite ends of a DO connection are using different, 
binary-incompatible, libraries, which will cause this kind of problem.

With gdnc, it's not a huge problem, because gdnc is started on demand 
automatically.  You should just be able to kill it and let it restart.  I'm 
still suspicious of why one of the type signatures was complete nonsense though 
- this is indicative of a bug somewhere else, although it might not be the 
cause of your problem.
