Is DCOP reentrant?

I encountered a problem using kdeprintd and kpasswdserver KDED modules
at the same time. My goal is to use kpasswdserver from kdeprintd. So
I use a call like

if (callingDcopClient()->call("kded", "kpasswdserver", "queryAuthInfo..."

The problem is that queryAuthInfo internal mechanism involves a
queueing process (using beginTransaction and endTransaction) which
completely messes up the original DCOP call:

1) the "call" method in kdeprintd code returns before the password
   dialog has been popped up
2) the calling client (which called a method in kdeprintd) gets the
   result of kpasswdserver instead of the result of kdeprintd module

Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
