  Installing unity8-session-snap adversely effects unity7

Bug description:
  [ Description ]

  In Xenial, when dbus-user-session is installed, dbus' upstart job
  still starts a new bus. Things get confused about which bus to talk

  [ Fix ]

  Already fixed in Yakkety. Cherry-pick the upstart job. On top of
  Yakkety's version, call `dbus-update-activation-environment --verbose
  --systemd GTK_MODULES', because Xenial does not have the change in
  upstart to automatically publish to the systemd activation

  /etc/X11/Xsession.d/95dbus_update-activation-env is called too early -
  before unity-gtk-module.conf is started - so dbus activated services
  miss the GTK_MODULES environment variable. Update unity-gtk-
  module.conf to set it in the dbus activation environment.

  [ QA ]

  Install dbus-user-session, press print screen. It should be delayed if
  you are experiencing this bug, and not delayed otherwise.

  Remove dbus-user-session, make sure the session still works properly -
  the global menu works, everything launches properly, etc.

  Test that gnome-terminal has global menus in both situations.

  [ Regression potential ]

  This change alters the way that the session bus is launched, even if
  you aren't using dbus-user-session. Even though this same change is
  deployed in ≥ yakkety, be aware of this. In yakkety we have installed
  dbus-user-session by default, so the case where you don't have it
  isn't as well tested. I would suggest focusing some testing on the non
  dbus-user-session case.

  [ Original report ]

  After installing the deb (and then the snap), certain things in the
  unity7 session take a very long time (30 to 60 secs), such as
  launching chromium and ctrl-alt-t for a new terminal session.

  Removing both the deb and the snap followed by a reboot does not fix
  the symptoms.
