Thanks for this update, Seb!

You noted in the list of 'new' processes:

  pxgsettings processes (libproxy use in geoclue and lenses?) 

I've noticed this here as well; on my system this comes to 10 processes (5
shells, 5 pxgsettings instances).  That looks very wrong to me.  Why is this
not running as a single dbus service with multiple clients?  Is this a
priority for the desktop team to look at?
