Don't listen for arguments from new processes in test or benchmarks #19455

This pull request prevents the following macOS firewall prompt from showing up when running tests:

The prompt was being shown because we had some code within listenForArgumentsFromNewProcess that would conditionally create a domain socket file when AtomApplication wasn't being instantiated in test or benchmark environments. For test/benchmark environments, this meant that this.socketPath would be undefined.

Unfortunately, the conditional didn't extend all the way down until listening for incoming connections, which had the unfortunate side effect of calling server.listen with an undefined argument (this.socketPath). In turn, this would instruct Node to listen for any TCP connection on a random port, which would then kick off the firewall given that the machine could potentially accept connections coming from the Internet or LAN.

With this pull request, we are changing that behavior by moving the conditional up, and only call listenForArgumentsFromNewProcess when instantiating a real AtomApplication.

I am still not sure why autocomplete-plus tests are failing, I am investigating that right now. They seem to fail consistently after #19446 got merged, but I am not really sure how that pull request could cause those tests to fail.
