Subject: [PATCH] daemon: ensure cache files for system users are processed

At the moment we skip cache files for system users.  That
doesn't make much sense; if there's a cache file we should
be using it.

This commit changes the code to read cache files, even for
system users, and so lets root have a non-default session.
