should look for errors in upstart logs (once user sessions are enabled)

Bug Description

With upstart handling the user session (which will be the case in "s"), gnome-session is becoming an upstart job and having it output logged in .cache/upstart/gnome-session.log rather than .xsession-errors, we should teach apport to look into that location as well

summary: - should look for errors in upstart log once user sessions are enabled
+ should look for errors in upstart logs (once user sessions are enabled)

Oh, extra note: if other D.E than unity opt-in for using upstart for their session, they will likely need a similar change with gnome-session -> <session manager in use>
