 client: disconnect all signal handlers when client is disposed

I've encountered an intermittent GNOME Shell crash when needrestart[1]
is allowed to restart system services that are using outdated shared
libraries, which sometimes includes BlueZ. The crash seems to involve
signals being delivered to a freed BluetoothClient, which can be avoided
by using g_signal_connect_object(). I haven't encountered the crash
since applying this change, although since it was always intermittent
I cannot be sure that it is fully solved.

This might be caused by using the Bluetooth Quick Connect shell
extension[2], which will create and destroy a BluetoothClient when the
extension is loaded and unloaded, which will in turn happen when the
screen is locked (due to extensions being disabled in the lock screen).
