unity-greeter (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

On the unity-greeter/lightdm screen.
Before logging in.
Click on the calender, click on the "Add event entry"
Evolution new account setup wizard starts up.

Since I'm not logged in, yet. This is a UX fail.

Ain't lightdm running as root -> will evolution be set up as root? =/ I cringe....

Similarly you can adjust volume, but PulseAudio is set up per-user session. So is root running pulseaudio session now as well?
