I can't know how you can fix this, unless you provide more information
about the error you get.

1) To avoid the allocation of memory needed by System.Reflection in the
MD process.
2) To avoid conflicts between loaded assemblies needed to run MD and
assemblies being parsed.

Which benefit has D-Bus over remoting in this particular use case?
