No idea. But the check seems to be not functionnal here obviously.

Yes. If you want me to test a patch before committing it, or to run a
debug patch with some printf or whatever, do not hesitate.

Again, be careful on one last thing. I did a couple of tests in an Emacs
session, and sometimes I saw:

method call sender=:1.254 -> dest=org.freedesktop.DBus serial=27 
path=/org/freedesktop/DBus; interface=org.freedesktop.DBus; member=ReleaseName
   string "some.service"

And I was *only* testing dbus-register-signal, so there seems to be
still some case or the "(when service …" stuff is doing ReleaseName even
on a signal match.
