Xpra: Ticket #152: "xpra --use-display" error-resistance

xpra should do all necessary initializations _before_ taking over another display.

I just wanted to replace a hung xpra, and used the same commandline arguments - plus "--use-display". But that got the running session killed:

$ /usr/bin/xpra ...
cannot start - failed to create tcp socket: [Errno 98] The address is already in use
removing socket ...

because I may not use the same "--bind-tcp" address.

Yes, that may well be what caused other problems.

fixed in r1010: we start sockets before xvfb, tcp first so we don't clobber the unix domain socket if we fail to create the tcp socket
