Bug Description

Since the addition of per-application namespaces in response to the security review, two sources can share the same ID.

Unfortunately, libusermetricsoutput was not updated to handle this, and so the data sets associated with sources sharing the same ID fight each other.

  * Data sources are now keyed by their dbus path in
    libusermetricsoutput This allows them to share the same IDs. (LP:

  * Append the libusermetrics/themes path to each XDG entry
