This is as designed: Developer Snapshot builds do not have
system/desktop integration (yes, the naming we've been using is rather
confusing, because we've been naming betas with desktop integration also
Dev. Snapshots, and we've been placing them all in the same page - IMHO
something we should fix in the future, in OOo times the distinction
between Dev. Snaps. - builds from trunk - and alphas/betas
- builds from current release branch - was more clear).

You have to enable it:
Tools - Options... - OOo-Dev - Memory - check "Enable systray

this two are obvious: this is a Developer Snapshot, it is not supposed
to update the current default installation (though in theory it should
update any other previous Developer Snapshot - "in theory" == update is
completely broken on Linux, a full removal is required).
