I was trying out Emacs and dbus-send and ran int a minor

I sent the following:

dbus-send --session --print-reply --dest=org.gnu.emacs.TextEditor \
   /org/gnu/emacs/TextEditor org.gnu.emacs.TextEditor

It sucessfully created an emacs process.

However, I got the message:

Error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.

My .service file contains:

[D-BUS Service]

Is the emacs dbus binary setup to send replies?

How do I debug this?

I am running:

GNU Emacs 23.2.1 (i686-pc-cygwin, GTK+ Version 2.20.1) of 2010-10-01 on
