Bug#503377: vlc: Seems to start gnome-power-manager when playing

Some questions/reflexions:

in which package is the kde power manager ?
Does it install a file in /usr/share/dbus-1/ ?

Does it listen for org.freedesktop.PowerManagement (not sure how to check that)

Does the kde power manager even try to implement this freedesktop
spec? maybe it's too recent and haven't been integrated yet?
what version of the kde power manager do you have?

then i see three solutions:

1) We say it's an user bug. people should know better than mix gnome
and kde packages ;)
2) It's a kde bug for not implementing the freedesktop spec and not
listening on dbus ;)
3) it's a vlc upstream bug for not checking that someone is listening
for org.freedesktop.PowerManagement before sending message it.
