GNOME 3 and Autostart apps

Just a heads up for people that are making updates to GNOME apps.  Some 
autostart applications (like gnome-bluetooth I just noticed) have added 
lines like:

AutostartCondition=GNOME3 if-session gnome-fallback

Which means it will only be installed if the gnome-session session is 

One way to fix this (if, as is the case in bluetooth, the functionality 
was moved to shell and that's why the condition was added) is to change 
the line to:

AutostartCondition=GNOME3 unless-session gnome
