No it won't.

I think you are mistaking the name your application chooses to register 
to a D-Bus bus with the internal unique name attributed by the D-Bus bus.

This is the later that starts with ':' and that is necessarily unique.

The DBus.Unique property is not related to that. It just tells that you 
want your application to be launched once, which implies some specific 
options when registering the custom application name, and other specific 
code in the 'gb.dbus' component.
