Bug Description

In bug #1185565, indicators are dropping xdg autostart files & dbus activation files.
This breaks sessions which are not managed by upstart.

One can have the best of the both worlds.

Under upstart user-sessions, /usr/share/upstart/xdg/ is added to XDG_CONFIG_DIRS, thus one can place an override autostart/indicator-$foo.desktop file there which declares "Hidden=true" and thus under upstart managed session the xdg-autostart file will be ingored.

Similarly dbus file is re-introduced, as to allow for dbus activation of the indicators.

Patch to follow.

I no longer require dbus activation in ubiquity, and thus lost interest in driving this...
