dbus-0.50 on FC4. If it's only me, nevermind. I won't use multiple 
instances of the verve plugin anyway and it's working well otherwise. I 
just reported it as it looked like it could be a bug.
On the other hand, does it make sense to allow multiple instances of 
verve-plugin running? Using verve-focus, you can only focus one at a 
time anyway...
