Re: PGP popups are b0rken on ssh tunnel usage.

        -> ssh window gets *text* *popup*

What exactly do do mean with “popup” - a real dialogue, of the desktop notification bubble?

As I don't have two machines, I cannot reproduce this scenario completely.  However, I ran a VM, then logged 
into the host machine via ssh -X, and ran balsa (current git master).  The window appears on the VM guest's 
X11, but the desktop notification bubble /still/ appears on the hosts' X11 screen.

I can only guess that in your case there is no X server running on PC-B, which “somehow” blocks the 
propagation of the notification.  Peter recently migrated notifications to g_application_send_notification(), 
so my build may actually behave differently than yours, though.

All other popups work as expected (new email, filters, properties, etc ..)

The notification bubble about new messages /also/ appears on the wrong (host, not guest) X11 screen for me.  
There is nothing special about gpg notifications, btw. – they use that same primitives as *all* other Balsa 

To me this looks as if the desktop notifications are broken when ssh tunneling is involved (but this may be a 
false positive as I'm using a vm).  Anyone out there with more insight (or two boxes for testing)?
