If it said it could not connect, it was probably from runlevel 3 :
when I had --test working with 0.11 at soem point in the past, it
was from runlevel 3 so that warning can be ignored.

Now, the daemon is definitely running, but all I get from the test
is a white screen.  As I said before, it might be that my
environment is missing something, probably something QML-related.
