Bug Description

Dear Developers,

In prewious Orca releases if anybody enabled the kill X Server related hotkey (CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE), Orca automaticaly kill and restart Speech-dispatcher process to prowide speech support without the user manual need running killall speech-dispatcher command. This possibility is awailable, if anybody enabling the CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE key combination to kill X server in GNOME Control Center Keyboard Layout pane/preferences dialog part.
This patch is only an Ubuntu level patch, and doesn't reported this problem with upstream level. For example, with Orca master versions if the X server is killed and the user login a session, need manual killing Speech-dispatcher process and press a key to Speech-dispatcher begin talking again.
Now, this good working patch is dropped with Oneiric gnome-orca package.

I attached again Luke doed patch.
Possible putting back this patch the debian/patches directory in gnome-orca source package, or reporting Orca related this Speech-dispatcher killing related problem and attaching Luke patch?

For example, this patch are useful if need restarting lightdm login manager with service lightdm restart command.

Hy Luke,

Thank you with your patch putting back.
You reporting this issue for upstream? Your openion have chance upstream
level will accepting your patch to Orca restart automaticaly
Speech-dispatcher if the X server kill the user and logging back?

I am not sure if this is an issue that needs solving upstream, as I don't even know the cause. I'll debug this further when I get a chance, and help with a proper fix, but just killing speech-dispatcher at every orca start is not the proper fix, because speech-dispatcher should have no problem being left running if a user logs in, kills X, logs in again, logs out and back in, etc.
