Totem is the GNOME media player. I'm not surprised that weird
things happen when you pull a crap-load of GNOME dependencies into KDE.
Even less relevant to your problem, but this is one reason why I
stick with GNOME: the apps I like to use are all either GNOME or GTK
apps, and so using them with KDE just doesn't "fit" smoothly. Like
putting an octagonal peg in a pentagonal hole.
