As i said to the bug reporter, ocaml-dbus is not thread friendly at all; it
never drop the ocaml lock through the caml_enter_blocking_section /
caml_leave_blocking_section, so if any calls block they would block the whole
application using it.

This thread doesn't seems to involves ocaml-dbus here though, so there could
be bugs in ocaml-ssl bindings too.
