This piece of code is very simple and easy to debug. I think after some careful examinations, it can be stable.
If the crash is caused by libpolkit-agent itself, this is not acceptable as it's a security hole. It should be fixed immediately upstream and this is not the problem of session manager.
Crashing of policykit should be nearly impossible for a distro. Otherwise, it will be a security hole. So no matter it's stable or not, upstream authors will fix it and make it stable enough.

What about the stability ? Having the 2 running in the same process mean
that any crash on 1 kill the session, which is quite critical.
