Description of problem:
Fixing bug #452156 broke 'startx' -- it needs to be opening a new session, but because XDG_SESSION_COOKIE is already set in the shell for the text session, it doesn't.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot to runlevel 3.
2. Log in.
3. Run 'startx'.
4. Open a terminal window.
5. Run 'ck-list-sessions'.
Actual results:
No new session, and your old session is not active, and isn't connected to the display.

Expected results:
New session attached to your display.

Additional information:
Unsetting XDG_SESSION_COOKIE before running 'xinit' in the 'startx' script would probably do the trick.
