Not sure, but maybe every Zeroconf/Bonjour implementation could be
potentially incompatible.

There was a thread in September on desktop-devel-list about switch from
howl to avahi in GNOME Desktop and there should be more info on this

I repeat: I'm not sure this could be the reason of your issue, 'cause I
don't know if implementation means simply API/ABI or sending data over
the network.
