When I've attached GDB (or done SysRq), it's the gdbus thread that is stuck.

I use g_dbus_connection_emit_signal in the callback from
g_child_watch_add.  Does that occur in the main loop?  Does the gdbus
thread ever call back in to my code, or does it also go through the
main loop?

I did attempt 2.28.0, same issue.  I'll just have to upgrade my host
tools and build 2.32.  Still of course unclear whether I'm looking at
a kernel or userspace issue.  The part that bothers me the most is
that simply sending a SIGCHLD to the gdbus thread causes it to wake up
and function.
