Bug Description

Running BloGTK 2.0 from PPA.

When adding a new blog running on Lotus Connections (which is similar to Apache Roller and supports the MetaweblogAPI), the automatic detection of settings doesn't work. It never returns and just sits there trying to discover the settings.

Running from the command line yields this error.

andyp@acheron:~$ blogtk2
/usr/bin/../share/blogtk2/lib/blogtk2/main.py:63: Warning: g_set_prgname() called multiple times
  program = gnome.init('blogtk', '2.0')
Exception in thread Thread-1:

Incidentally that first error (g_set_prgname) happens anytime BloGTK is run, including with the --version flag.

Ubuntu 9.10 on Intel.

Incidentally it works fine on retrieving posts from the blog if I manually configure the xmlrpc endpoint settings in BloGTK. Similarly, posting works fine, although tags are not applied to the post.

Lotus Connections also supports the ATOM Publishing Protocol I believe. Could BloGTK support that? It's a growing enterprise blogging platform.

The g_set_prgname thing can be ignored as it happens on starting most apps it seems, including e.g. Firefox - guess it's a Glib thing.

... although.... I suppose that implies the option parsing happens after glib stuffs are init'd which probably doesn't make sense in the case of --version?
