The "TpConnectionManager was not my finest hour" release.

This is a bugfix-only release in the stable branch, containing all applicable
fixes from 0.9.1.

telepathy-glib is the GObject binding for the Telepathy real-time communication
framework, which can be used to implement user interfaces, connection managers
(protocol backends), and other Telepathy components.

The latest reviewed code is always available from:
git://git.collabora.co.uk/git/telepathy-glib.git (telepathy-glib-0.8 branch)
http://git.collabora.co.uk/?p=telepathy-glib.git (gitweb)


* fd.o #23853: if a connection manager is discovered not to be running while
  TpConnectionManager has a ListProtocols call in-flight, then a new instance
  of the CM starts up and replies to that call, don't crash with an assertion
  failure (smcv)

* If a connection manager returns error from GetParameters(), don't dereference
  a NULL pointer and segfault (smcv)

* When asked to activate or introspect a connection manager, don't do anything
  until we have at least worked out whether it was initially running, in order
  to provide the documented behaviour (smcv)

* When getting parameter details from a running connection manager, consider
  parameters called "password" or ending with "-password" to be secret even
  if they lack the SECRET flag, as was already done when reading .manager
  files (smcv)

* Corrected the error message given when a write-only D-Bus property
  is read (Pekka Pessi)
