Description Ross Burton 2006-06-13 09:47:59 UTC
If a server-side method wrapped with the GLib bindings receives a message marked
with the noreply flag, a reply is sent anyway.

This then confuses the client as there is no pending reply for the message reply
that arrives, so it sends back an error (AccessDenied specifically).
Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2006-06-13 10:45:54 UTC
glib bindings should do this, but it should not confuse the client if it gets 
an error or reply without a pending reply, so robustness against that is 
another bug to fix.

(The bus sending accessdenied is correct I think, but the sender of the reply 
should just ignore this error)

I missed this earlier bug when filing bug 19441, which is now fixed.
