[Bug 1768929] [NEW] Ubuntu Welcome wizard shouldn't show at next login if user closes it

Public bug reported:

Impact
------
If a user closes the Welcome to Ubuntu wizard before completing it, it will still automatically start the next time the user logs in.

This can be annoying so we're fixing it.

Test Case
----------
1. Install Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
2. Restart and log in.
3. The Welcome to Ubuntu wizard appears. Close it by either doing:
a. Right Click on the icon in the Dock on the left and select Quit, or
b. Click "Welcome to Ubuntu" in the top bar to open the app menu and then select Quit.
4. Log out.
5. Log back in.

The Welcome to Ubuntu wizard should not start.

Regression Potential
--------------------
Since none of the pages in the Welcome to Ubuntu wizard are mandatory, it is harmless for it to be ignored.

Our patch also was careful to not change the "new user" mode which isn't
really used in Ubuntu. See LP: #1762287 for details about that mode.

Other Info
----------
We decided to apply this change even in the GNOME session. Ubuntu GNOME 17.04 included gnome-initial-setup by default. GNOME upstream at this time likes the feature where the wizard will show up on next login until it is completed.

Hello Jeremy, or anyone else affected,

Accepted gnome-initial-setup into bionic-proposed. The package will
build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source
/gnome-initial-setup/3.28.0-2ubuntu6.1 in a few hours, and then in the
-proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation on how
to enable and use -proposed.Your feedback will aid us getting this
update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug,
mentioning the version of the package you tested and change the tag from
verification-needed-bionic to verification-done-bionic. If it does not
fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the
tag to verification-failed-bionic. In either case, without details of
your testing we will not be able to proceed.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in
advance!

Confirmed in a bionic VM. Skipping the welcome wizard by closing it does
not cause it to show on the next login.
