Gnome Accessibility Bus unconfigured without corresponding declaration

Bug Description

On launching Gnome-based apps within a Lubuntu session I regularly received console errors like the following from even console apps...

** (apport-gtk:15078): WARNING **: Error retrieving accessibility bus address: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.a11y.Bus was not provided by any .service files

I have found that adding the following line to /etc/profile ...

export NO_AT_BRIDGE=1

...suppresses the requests for the accessibility bus. This is a feature request to configure Lubuntu desktop to include this Environment variable through /etc/profile or equivalent.

An equivalent functionality is allegedly possible through declarations within /etc/security/pam_env.conf although I haven't tested this. Another Lubuntu-specific location may be better but I'm not that familiar with Lubuntu/LXDE session configuration files.

Note: I'm running Lubuntu with the Compiz window manager and gtk-window-decorator (I don't know if this is relevant, and kind of doubt it).
