  Canceling restore does not stop in-progress restore process

Status in deja-dup package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  There is a cancel button in the 'restore' dialog. The button closes
  the dialog but does not kill the underlying `deja-dup --restore`

  To reproduce:
  1) Launch Backup app
  2) Click the "I want to restore files from a previous backup" button. The "Restore" dialog opens.
  3) In the Restore dialog, select an external disk that does NOT have backups on it and click "Forward". The dialog should now say "Checking for backups" with a progress bar.
  4) In a terminal, look for a restore process (e.g. `ps ax | grep restore`). Note that there should be exactly one `deja-dup --restore` process
  5) Click the cancel button in the Restore dialog
  6) Repeat step 4 to check for running processes

  Expected results:
  The Restore dialog closes and the underlying deja-dup process is killed

  Actual results:
  The Restore dialog closes. The underlying deja-dup --restore process is not killed.

  If the user tries to relaunch the backup app and restore files, they
  will be presented with the error, "Restore Failed: Another backup
  operation is already running"

  The workaround is to kill the deja-dup --restore process
