custom lightdm.conf including commented out autologin-user fails to be setup for live session

Bug Description

casper version 1.279

I was testing using the daily mythbuntu image for 08/29/11 and finding that autologin is not properly setup. This is because in the mythbuntu-lightdm-theme package uploaded the night before, it now includes a commented out line "#autologin-user=" to fix the sed command usage in user-setup-apply used during ubiquity later on.

The casper hook 15autologin is checking for 'autologin-user' anywhere in the lightdm conf meaning it will also match on commented out lines.
