Albrecht,

following your advice, I've added the following in my .xsession file:

# Check the gpg trusted database
gpg --check-trustdb --batch --yes &

Then, gpg is saying as being not available for the time the update  
takes. But no hang, only the (expected) message.

I have done that 10 days ago and I've no more this problem.

There is only something wrong sometimes but it is difficult to say  
exactly:
If there is a gpg error because a key "contains no data", sometimes  
there is the popup and sometimes nothing happens, balsa seems to be  
dead. I have not had the patience to wait until it recover from that.
