Bug Description

Sometimes on first start onboard's theme is partially reset, leaving it in a visually unpleasant state. This corrects itself on the following start, but can be repeated occasionally by resetting onboards gsettings schema with
gsettings reset-recursive apps.onboard.

Causing this are unexpected gsettings change events, coming in after onboard's initialization is done. Some events of keys onboard touches are expected on first start, but here each and every one onboard subscribes too is fired.

This happens rather frequently when first-time auto-starting onboard in unity2d, but can be reproduced occasionally when resetting the schema in the user session. Attached is a log that shows this happening in 2 out of 32 tries.

The root cause is unknown, and I have no simple test case yet for a bug report against glib.

Onboard main has a workaround, though now there is a new glib warning in the console output (lp:878505).

Looks good. I've logged into unity-2d a halve dozen times with a reset schema, and the autostarted onboard always came up fine.
