Bug Description

When I login to the desktop, ubuntuone-syncdaemon is started even if I have "Ubuntu One" disabled from the list of the "Start up" applications.

Is worth noting that the syncdaemon is started but is not connected (this was fixed recently).

The reason for syncdaemon startup is unconditional syncdaemon calls from nautilus extension.

The correct way to disable file sync in U1 is to do so in the ubuntuone-preferences dialog. Disabling the autostart of any app in the session startup properties dialog has no merit on whether or not the app listed there will actually start or not at some other point in the session. It merely means that the executable specified in the autostart file will not be run by the session manager. Any DBus service for example, will probably be run as soon as anything which uses that service, requests a connection to it. This is the case for Ubuntu One as well as many other services also listed there.
