    improve dealing with user credentials · c7e8a261

    This patch improves using Balsa binaries built with “libsecret” support
    in situations where the Secret Service is not available or usable.  It
    should fix the issues described in #52
    .  To this end, an environment
    variable is used to force using the obfuscated config file.
    Any libsecret error messages are reported through desktop notifications
    instead of just writing them as debug messages.
    Add a toggle icon to password text entry widgets to show/hide the value
    (note: not in the GcrUi.PromptDialog).
