[Patch/Cleanup] No segfault when dbus not running

The dialer can segfault, when there is no dbus running/runnable.

The main problem is calling org_freedesktop_DBus_request_name with proxy==NULL
and later looking at error (which is not properly set).

This patch stops this and factors the dbus setup partly out of main().

It also lets the dialer work _somewhat_ in this situation. That means, that the
dialer pops up immediately (so it can be used at all).
Letting the dialer work in this situation should not be considered a problem:

  • The changes needed to get this "feature" are minimal and non-invasive
  • They don't hurt
  • This is not a standard situation, so if the "feature" later breaks, it does't hurt either. (read: Nobody should care to hold this feature working)

In one sentence: It's currently "free" and involves no later "costs".
