[Bug 1535058] Re: applications close instantly when launched from the launcher or dash

So I've taken a clean install from Desktop ISO and installed everything
and cgmanager ends up enabled correctly and starts by default. So I
believe that on my system, and others, there was an upgrade issue
(perhaps a release or more ago). I don't know of anything that I did on
my system that disabled cgmanager, but it was installed and disabled, I
believe incorrectly. I'm not sure how we could reproduce that though.

My advice would be to leave the cgmanager portion as Incomplete until
someone can come up with repo steps, but unfortunately I don't have
those. Just some ideas.

I have shown that a clean install doesn't have this issue. (with the
appropriate versions with the fixes attached)

  applications close instantly when launched from the launcher or dash
  but... if i launch the apps from a VT (for ex firefox using Xmir or gedit native --), the app loads ok.

  what close instantly means.. it opens the window and then it closes
  instantly in ~0.3s
