it seems that tp-m-c started from dbus does not get that! I added some 
output to run-mc.sh, but DBUS_SYSTEM_BUS_ADDRESS was empty! Seems dbus 
strips some env vars out?

run-mc.sh now it works, see patch[1].

yes --enable-installed-tests is set, just the install directory I patch 
to an other location.

it seems with the above mentioned patch it just works now?! Yes we run 
it in similar manner as CITA.

I noticed that bug this morning. Let's see what it changes :-)

Thanks and best regards
