Bug description:
  Impact
  ------
  webkit2gtk 2.20 adds a new security feature called the Gigacage that uses an 
extremely large virtual memory address space (much larger than available 
physical memory).

  Deja Dup's monitor background service had "ulimit -v 1000000" (that's
  1 GB) set as a workaround for a memory leak issue that the developer
  was unable to reproduce.

  After upgrading to the new webkit2gtk version, Deja Dup's monitor
  service will crash because of that virtual memory limit.

  Test Case
  ---------
  Install the deja-dup update.
  Install the webkit2gtk update from a PPA (not prepared yet).
  Log out. Log in.
  After a few minutes, check /var/crash/ for any Deja Dup crash reports.

  Regression Potential
  --------------------
  This could reintroduce the memory leak bug, but otherwise this is a minimal 
fix. Even if that happens, it's better than the service refusing to run.
