[PATCH] two small balsa 2.0 fixes


below is a patch against the 2.0 cvs to fix two minor problems:

(1) sometimes system error messages (e.g. through gpgme) which may contain  
non UTF-8 encoded national characters are passed to libbalsa_information.  
To avoid pango errors, first sanitise them (file src/information-dialog. 

(2) when gpg updates the trust database, it is not available for any  
crypto operations. While the update is really fast (< 1 second) for small  
(~50 keys) key rings, users with huge key rings will see balsa stalling  
for as long as several minutes. We now check if gpg is available before  
starting any crypto operation and return a "try again later" error if not.  
Note that this is not a bullet-proof check as the update process might be  
launched by a background process (think of crond) in the few milliseconds  
between the check and the real crypto operation (a classical race...), but  
it should help in the vast majority of cases (files libbalsa/rfc3156.[hc],  

Any comments?



P.S.: Jean-Luc, could you please check if this really solves your problem?  
Thanks, Albrecht.
