To test whether the patch fixes the problem I presumably have to wait
till I reboot the machine, which may not be till tomorrow.  Does it
suffice to simply apply the patch and restart Emacs, or do I need to
redump or rebuild Emacs?

Thanks for the quick response.

PS: If the patch works, before you commit it you should, in the doc
string of dbus-ping, change "25.000" to "25,000": `.' and `,' have the
opposite roles in German and English numerals.
