crash in dbus-launch

So while looking at an odd Fedora gnome-session bug:
I noticed that the dbus-launch babysitter process in 0.94 and later
crashes while trying to initialize its X11 code.
It tries to pre-create some X atoms that the autolaunch bits need even
when not using --autolaunch, and the end result is a null pointer
dereference caused by trying to read the machine uuid that would have
been passed to --autolaunch.
The attached patch seems to fix things by bypassing the atom creation
code in the case where we don't use --autolaunch.
