d-bus error when running unstable totem


(originally posted this in desktop-devel-list, but this may be a more
appropriate list. I apologize if it's not)

I am trying to write a small patch/enhancement to totem. I 've
checked out the totem source code from the project's git.
git clone git://git.gnome.org/totem

I built and installed it in a local non-system-wide directory
/home/totem-install with the folllowing commands:

./configure --prefix=/home/totem-install
make install

When I try to run the newly built version I get the folowing d-bus
error messages:

root madrugada:/home/totem-install# bin/totem
(process:2141): Totem-WARNING **: Could not load desktop file
'/usr/local/share/applications/totem.desktop': No such file or
(totem:2141): Totem-WARNING **: Failed to connect to the session
manager: None of the authentication protocols specified are supported
(totem:2141): Unique-DBus-WARNING **: Unable to open a connection to
the session bus: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the
remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security
policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network
connection was broken.
(totem:2141): Unique-DBus-WARNING **: Unable to connect to the running
instance, aborting.

This is on debian/squeeze amd64.

Even when creating a symbolic link /usr/local/share/applications/ to
/usr/share/app-install/desktop (where my system-wide totem scripts
are)) I still get the rest of the error messages.

Is there some procedure or d-bus updating that I need to setup in
order to run this unstable totem player?

any advice is welcome. thanks,
