When layouts.xml fails to load, Pinta crashes

Bug Description

layouts.xml contains information on window size and position when Pinta was last closed. If it doesn't exist, a new one is created. However, if it does exist but is corrupted or similar, Pinta will crash when trying to read it. Instead, Pinta should catch the errors and recreate layouts.xml.

See this mailing list thread for further references: https://groups.google.com/group/pinta/browse_thread/thread/ea20927cc1be71b3?hl=en (Note that this bug is a general observation unrelated to whatever it is that's causing the corruption in that case.)

This is not a very common issue, but I'm increasing the importance since it can crash Pinta.

We still should figure out why the file is being corrupted, but this should at least make things more robust.
