Comment 2 John (J5) Palmieri 2007-10-16 12:46:00 EDT
This is a harmless warning with an easy fix (just patch the close call out). 
The D-Bus call simply ignores close requests on shared connections since the
library and not the application manages shared connection.  In later versions of
D-Bus we added the warning so developers would fix their code otherwise it is
just a no-op.

Kicking to davidz who owns HAL.
