Need DCOP advice

Hi all,

I'm trying to get some advice on a DCOP-related issue.  When you run the 
MediaControl applet in kicker, and then start juk, kicker freezes for a few 
seconds until JuK has finished loading.

This is because JuK has blocked DCOP signals during startup, and this is 
blocking the applet's DCOP sends() and calls().  I've tried changing the call 
in question that's blocking to callAsync(), but that doesn't help, apparently 
because the async part is for the message receive, not both send/receive.

So, I'm wondering: Is there a function I can call to check if an app is 
blocking DCOP signals?  If not, is it possible to send calls through the dcop 
client in a thread other than the GUI thread (properly secured by a mutex)?
