API "break" request

  I'm sorry to come this late ask for an API change, but I've just
discovered[1].  Apparently rescanning header files and merging .defs
again for libgnomeui caused an accidental rename of
gnome.ui.Client.connect_to_session_manager (gnome-python 2.6.x) to
gnome.ui.Client.connect (2.9.x).

  This is change was accidentally and may break existing gnome-python
applications.  Moreover, the overloading of connect() in gnome.ui.Client
and gobject.GObject causes major confusion for developers.

  The following patch fix it.  There's no danger to "rush" the API here,
I just want to use the old and tested API.
