Description Simon McVittie 2009-02-17 08:38:49 UTC
tp_base_connection_manager_register uses a TpDBusDaemon that it just unreffed.

This wouldn't be a problem in a connection manager that uses tp_run_connection_manager() (because in practice a single TpDBusDaemon is used for the whole run), but it causes failures in one of the telepathy-qt4 regression tests (which instantiates its own TpBaseConnectionManager subclass).

I'm only filing this bug so I can refer to it in telepathy-qt4, so assigning to myself and not spamming telepathy-bugs.
