VLC and Movie Player on Lubuntu

Running Lubuntu 12.04 which was installed as standard ubuntu then
When I plug in a DVD it asks me which app to use. If I select VLC
(which I had installed before lubuntu-desktop was installed) then it
opens vlc but does not start playing the DVD. If I then press play it
opens a file dialog for me to select what to play. I then have to
select the Disc tab and then the DVD is shown in the the disc device
field and I can then play it.
If, instead, in a terminal I run
then it opens and plays ok, so it appears the device is not being
passed to vlc when it auto runs on inserting a DVD.
I see the same effect if I tell it to use movie player when I insert the dvd.
Logging on with Unity it all works ok.
Are others seeing the same effect with Lubuntu? If not then I suppose
it could be something not correctly setup when adding lubuntu-desktop.
