`dbus-register-signal' checks for the a valid service name, if it isn't
nil. Usually, "some.service" is not known; in my test
`dbus-register-signal' raises an error then.

How did you manage to register your signal with that service?

These two entries show the correct match rule (the respective last element).

This entry has a corrupted match rule. Again, which trick brings
`dbus-register-signal' to accept it? I must implement a counter-check
for this!

Which is the correct answer, because there isn't a valid match rule. I
could add a check for a valid match rule before sending the
"RemoveMatch" message, but I believe this is superfluous, because there
is exactly one place that match rule is appended. At this place, we must
prevent wrong values.

Best regards, Michael.
