PA_SUSPEND_USER signifies that the User is no longer active. e.g. if the
"Login as another user" option is selected in Gnome/KDE.

PA very much should not automatically recover from a PA_SUSPEND_USER, it
needs to be told when this is OK.

On a typical desktop, it's ConsoleKit that dictates this information to
us and we listen for what it says with module-console-kit.
