Bug Description

Unity8 needs to support the use of an environment variable indicating a (multi-user) desktop session so it can set the profile of the indicator-session appropriately.

The target of this change is to allow session logout from the Unity8 desktop preview session in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

Seems Unity8 already has an environment variable to set the indicator profile, but it gets clobbered by a hardcoded value of 'phone' that can only be overridden by a command-line switch.

The Unity8 desktop preview session should set the -profile=desktop command-line switch when starting the shell so indicators will use the appropriate profile.
