[Evolution-hackers] Workaround for 68533

I've been trying to ensure that evolution-data-server goes away when the
user's session ends, but have been running into this problem:

So it seems that the ECalBackends are never finalized, and so the
anniversaries backend keeps alive the EDataBook for the local contacts,
and hence e-d-s keeps itself alive.

Attached is a dubious workaround I've been trying.  On the assumption
that there will always be a leaked ECalBackend keeping an addressbook
alive, it allows e-d-s to quit when there are no calendars and a
_single_ addressbook around.  

Seems to work: I've tested on FC3, with various combinations of
running/not running Evolution and the panel clock, with various
calendars/addressbooks etc, and with evolution-alarm-notify.  e-d-s now
goes away sanely, but it's a fairly dubious hack.  

Thoughts?  Flames?
