gnome-classic sessions broken with upstart user sessions

Bug #1381297 reported by Tim Lunn on 2014-10-15
This bug affects 3 people

gnome-session (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

As of GNOME 3.12 gnome-classic session is selected by setting a GNOME_SHELL_SESSION_MODE environment variable. upstream this is set in the gnome-session desktop file, however when using upstart user sessions this file gets bypassed and hence the gnome-classic session just loads a standard gnome-shell session.

We need to make sure this variable is set in the upstart user session as well
