Well, balsa should not stall... when you click the button, the command

/where/your/gpg/lives/gpg --no-greeting --recv-keys fingerprint

is launched in background, and balsa just looks if the process has been  
finished using a timeout callback. This should not block balsa, even if it  
takes a long time (keyservers are sometimes slow) to get the key. I never  
saw this behaviou before, so I guess this *might* be a problem in your gpg  
setup (maybe the command above somehow "locks" gpg, and the next call via  
gpgme to gpg is simply postponed until the first on terminates - wild
