Summary:  Starting of pasteboard server should be sooner

Original Submission:  the pasteboard server (gpbs) should be started sooner, 
not 'when requested'. Despite the lazy initialisation is a good practice, 
running the pasteboard server is not the right place to use it. It is making 
unpleasant user experience, when one tries to do cut/copy and more unpleasant 
when one wants to do drag&drop operation for the first time.

Therefore I would suggest that gpbs, when not started automatically by some 
init/login scripts, should be started by the first GNUstep application run, 
before the application enters the main run loop. So the request for running the 
gpbs will be 'first gnustep application run', not 'first use of pasteboard'.

Users are going to use PBS in most cases anyway.
