More to the point, GNOME isn't designed to have gnome-session 3.1.4,
gnome-settings-daemon 3.1.90 and gnome-control-center 3.1.91 -- you
just can't test the components on thier own when there's so much
inter-process communication. The modules are closely coupled and not
designed to be used to tested on thier own. This is only going to get
more true as GNOME releases continue.
