Dear Maintainer,

$ snappy Vinid\ \&\ State-V\ -\ Belief.mp3 
Loading: file:///root/Music/Vinid & State-V - Belief.mp3
Loading ui!

(snappy:28960): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_ref: assertion
G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed

** (snappy:28960): WARNING **: Problem inhibiting the screensaver:
GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NameHasNoOwner: Name
"org.gnome.SessionManager" does not exist
closing snappy
Segmentation fault

[ gdb foo... skipped ]

$ ls $HOME/.config/snappy

Supposedly you all have had ~/.config/snappy/ already in place for
a long time, so you haven't noticed the FAIL.

The attached patch fixes this for me. Please add to patches/series,
and sort out the header fields of the diff, when BTS entry returns.
