This is great news - but it is surprising that it needs a change to
the dbus code.  Isn't there a way to configure the default dbus
timeout, or to set it for particular methods?  From googling I've
found hints that adding "timeout=100" to the relevant method call
might work - but unfortunately nothing definitive on this.
