Description rongqing 2014-02-28 00:37:01 UTC
1. On X86-64, linux, The test of bus-test dispatch failed, The test shows dbus-1.6.10 and dbus-1.6.18 have the same issue.

2. It always happens on my machine, If can not reproduce it, I think we can modify the code to trigger this issue, let send_negotiate_unix_fd to return FALSE directly to simulator _dbus_string_append failure

diff --git a/dbus/dbus-auth.c b/dbus/dbus-auth.c
