Bug Description

Clicking on the Ubuntu One icon in the control-center or from the messaging menu launches multiple instances. This is inconsistent with the rest of the desktop apps and can cause problems. If you add a folder in one instance, it won't appear in the duplicate instances which could lead to bigger problems.

[Test Case]
1. Run ubuntuone-control-panel-qt
2. Run ubuntuone-control-panel-qt
3. Notice that without this fix, 2 control panels will open. With fix there will be only 1.

[Regression Potential]
Minimal. Unit tests updated with fix.
