  avahi-discover SEGVs if no X display

Status in avahi package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  $ DISPLAY=0 avahi-discover 
  /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gtk-2.0/gtk/__init__.py:57: GtkWarning: could not open display
    warnings.warn(str(e), _gtk.Warning)
  /usr/bin/avahi-discover:64: Warning: invalid (NULL) pointer instance
  /usr/bin/avahi-discover:64: Warning: g_signal_connect_data: assertion 'G_TYPE_CHECK_INSTANCE (instance)' failed
  Segmentation fault (core dumped)

  Probably a null deref, but still shouldn't happen if a program is
  checking its return codes for errors.
