Bug Description

[ Impact ]

Users can't restore a backup on a fresh install from the deja-dup UI.

[ Test Case ]

Open "Backups" (or run 'deja-dup') and click the "Restore..." button.

You should see a dropdown with options for a location, but instead with this bug, you see an empty dialog.

[ Regression Potential ]

Pretty small. The proposed patch just moves some widget initialization earlier.

[ Original Bug Description ]

Installed a new Ubuntu 17.10, created my user and tried to restore the backups from the server.
Pressed Overview, Restore and get an empty dialog. From screen shots I found I assume there should be some drop downs or buttons etc. but my dialog is empty.
