If a loginwindow profile has has "Disable Automatic Login" enabled, that computer cannot use Migration Assistant.

Steps to Reproduce:
1) Configure a destination computer with MacOS 10.11.1.  Install a Profile that manages Loginwindow, with the "Disable Automatic Login" checkbox enabled (set to true).
2) Attach a source computer via Target Disk Mode.
3) Run Migration Assistant on the destination computer.
4) Provide requested administrator credentials.
5) Computer will exit to loginwindow

Expected Results:
After authenticating within Migration Assistant, application would proceed to step of selecting source to migrate from.

Actual Results:
Computer returns to loginwindow.

Confirmed by me to happen under 10.11.1, using Profile created via Apple's Profile Manager.  Confirmed by others that the parallel option within JAMF's Casper can also induce the same crash.

Confirmed that replacing the existing profile with one that removed the Disable Automatic Login option allowed Migration Assistant to proceed as expected.
