ConsoleKit forgets sessions when restarted

No, it's a bug to restart ConsoleKit daemon. And it's not possible either,
there's no initscript anymore in Rawhide at least. See bug 435642 for why.

(of course sending it SIGUSR1, SIGUSR2 is always possible etc. etc.. But from

up to Jon if he wants to add such a feature later on. We have bigger fish to fry
