Configuring the server to start a new session at every connection

When the server is configured to start a new session (virtual desktop or custom session) at every connection, the session will be always terminated when users close them. No reconnection will be allowed. Connections to the physical display will be also not permitted.

This functionality will be activated through a new server configuration key:

# Force clients to start a new session at every connection. Server
# will always send an empty list of available sessions, users will
# be therefore not able to reconnect their Linux virtual desktops
# and custom sessions or to connect to other users' desktops if any.
# Specify 'all' to apply this setting to all users or provide a comma
# separated list of usernames. Disable session persistence to force
# the termination of virtual desktops and custom sessions. Set this
# key to 'none' to allow the server to provide the ordinary list of
# available sessions to the client. This is the default.
