I'm not sure of the problem but i can report this...
I think it has to do with one app using systemtray

The 1st instance of glaunch sets up org.gambas.glaunch
DBus.Name returns org.gambas.glaunch
glaunch dbus application contains the usual introsect, etc and org.command
(my interface)

The 2nd instance of glaunch sets up org.gambas.glaunch-<ID> (ID is a number)
DBus.Name wrongly returns org.gambas.glaunch
glaunch dbus application contains the usual introspect, etc and org.command
(my interface) and also a kde.statusnotifier

aah, result..
i just fixed it by adding DBus.Unique = True to the programs _init()
