Deja-dup should detect that another instance is already running for the same user.

Bug Description

I mananged to add two *.desktop links to autostart folders that start up deja-dup-monitor process. Now when it's time to back up one of them informs me with a window that "another backup is in progress".

I think that it would be good if during startup deja-dup-monitor would check if another instance for the user has been already started (e.g. by trying to lock a file) and if it's so t shoudl just exit.
