misc.py: Restore the corrent euid in regain_privileges_save

Calling regain_privileges_save should restore the effective user-id to the one
before the call to drop_privileges_save. We need to call os.setresuid and
os.setresgid twice to avoid permission issues when calling os.setgroups.

Fixes LP: #1751252

Move the Gio.Settings code into the constructor of the wizard

This runs with dropped privileges (uid = 0, euid = 999) whereas run() runs as
root (uid = 0, euid = 0). When run as 0 / 0, dconf creates its
XDG_RUNTIME_DIR/dconf/user database as root. We need to ensure that it runs in
a context with dropped privileges. (LP: #1767067)

Revert the previous incomplete upload

Revert the previous upload. It didn't actually *fix* all cases, just
papered over them. If the race was lost, the screen reader still didn't
work in ubiquity-dm mode.

Remove dconf/user before Try Ubuntu. LP: #1767067
Just, in case it has the wrong permissions, i.e. root and thus breaks
user running gnome session / shell / "Try Ubuntu".
