Bug Description

Under application confinement applications won't be allowed to register names on DBus. GApplication returns an error if it can't do that which makes programs unhappy. Instead they should just believe they are the primary app instance if they're running under isolation.

I see that HUD access needs to use:
  dbus (send)
       bus=session
       path="/com/canonical/hud"
       interface="com.canonical.hud"
       member="RegisterApplication",

but other than that, I am not seeing other accesses. SDK applications should be using GApplication now, so this is more of a converged device bug, isn't it? If so, should the priority be adjusted and the bug retargeted?

The SDK must not be creating the GApplication object with a well-known
name. So yes, I think that it makes sense to look at post-13.10 for
this.
