DBUS troubles, stupid HAL patch, and gaim-xscreensaver start

Still haven't got the DBUS session bus working :-(

Made a patch for HAL-CVS so it broadcasts kobject-uevents to DBUS. It's of no use. Will give it some usefullness (SP?) tomorrow :-)
Current patch is here.

Started working on the xscreensaver <-> DBUS link. Some testing code is here, not indented. It's buggy, so don't look at it too closely.
sGapor gave a good hint about another possible use of this daemon: pause your media player when your screensaver is started.
Creating the Gaim plugin to idle you when the screensaver is started shouldn't be too difficult now I looked at the sources of gaim-remote.

Anyone's got the name of a music group that plays Turkish traditional music?

[edit] Just got an email from Havoc with some pointers on how to try to get the system bus working. Tomorrow...

The other way around is possible too, stop my screensaver from activating when I start a movie (highly wanted!) or when I start an OpenOffice presentation.

Some media players can 'surpress' the screensaver. One thing that would be nice is to put my gaim status to 'busy' everytime an app goes fullscreen. (as in presentations, gaming, tv, ...)
