Could not launch application 'user-dirs-update-gtk.desktop'


I have this message in the syslog from squeeze:
May  2 21:18:19 squeeze x-session-manager[1732]: WARNING: Could not launch application 'user-dirs-update-gtk.desktop': Unable to start application: Failed to execute child process "xdg-user-dirs-gtk-update" (No such file or directory)
What's missing?
