For sure, it should be only one copy the wrapper and SDL application  run at
the same time. And I don't need any DBUS events except to know that the SDL
application crashes.

Some SDL programs for example don't use D-BUS (games might have

In my case I have similar situation. My SDL application doesn't use DBUS. It
isn't even initialize according to maemo conception (I think it's a good
point to add it). But the wrapper uses Gtk/Hildon UI.
