Bug Description

[Impact]
When autologin is enabled, unity can fails to start and block itself initializing the TrashLauncherIcon.

[Test case]
There's no reproducible way, unfortunately. Unity might hang on startup due to some missing glib initializations (and dbus sycn calls on trash launcher icon).

[Regression potential]
Nothing known, there's a posibility that the Trash can might not be show the right icon that matches the actual state. But still better than an hang.
