Yes, --user $USER worked out okay. I didn't know about the cmd options, sorry.
The purpose of the patch was just to help the user do what he really wants to 
do, that is give a list of available services instead of showing an error. 

Perhaps it could be implemented differently? Shouldn't dcop at least try to 
use the current session the user have before giving error ? Or maby, atleast, 
changing the error message ?
