Default totem, rhythmbox won't work without GNOME?

Whenever I try to run totem or rhythmbox, it
* changes my root window background (to a dark blue background I
assume is the Fedora/GNOME default)
* starts gnome-screensaver, gnome-vfs-daemon, gnome-settings-daemon
(which will cause my X session to hang hard if I don't
kill gnome-screensaver, as it interacts badly with
xscreensaver which I'm running.)
* crashes firefox

I'm not running GNOME, but a lightweight standalone window manager
(9wm). Has anyone else seen anything like this? Is there any way
to run totem, etc. without running GNOME?

Danny.

I second this, it also happens when starting totem within KDE.

I start totem (accedentaly, since I never use it really), something starts
changing the background to the default blue picture, repeatedly, every 30
seconds or so. I open the KDE desktop settings, and my old background is
still considered to be "active", but it isn't what I see. I switch it off and
back on, apply, and KDE puts my background back on the screen. It doesn't
last long, though --- after several seconds it is changed again to default
blue picture.

I also see firefox to crash. Don't know about the screensaver, I use none.

Once totem has been run, this annoying bahavior stops if I logout and login
back, ie. restart KDE. But only until next run of totem.

Any help on this appreciated.

Best, :-)
Marko

I have filed a bug report against totem and got this fixed in rawhide.

You can file a bug report against Rhythmbox if it has similar issues.
