Patch to avoid crashing when trying a login without devices

Hi, 

after building fprintd with --enable-pam on current Debian Sid, a test-install on a VirtualBox machine without any fingerprint reader revealed pam_fprint.so segfaults in pam/pam_fprintd.c on line 192 (path = paths[0]) in function *open_device.

The attached patch solves this segfault.

Cheers,

OdyX
