gsd-plugin should not ask for sso credentials

Bug Description

gsd-plugin is asking for sso credentials in order to set up the Ubuntu One bookmark in Nautilus, but this makes ubuntu-sso-client start on every login.

Instead, gsd-plugin should only listen for the "CredentialsFound" signal without actively asking for credentials, so this can actually happen the moment the computer is first added to Ubuntu One.


1. Open System > Preferences > Startup Applications
2. Make sure Ubuntu One is NOT checked and close Startup Applications
3. Restart Ubuntu
4. Open Applications > Accessories > Terminal and run: ps -ef | grep ubuntu-sso-client

Result: ubuntu-sso-client is returned

Expected result: ubuntu-sso-client is not returned
