BloGTK 2.0 doesn't report a GUI error message when XMLRPC services are disabled in a WordPress blog

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

When XMLRPC access is disabled on a standalone WordPress blog, the following appears on console

<type 'exceptions.Exception'> <Fault 405: u'I servizi XML-RPC sono disabilitati su questo blog. Un amministratore pu\xf2 abilitarli su [blog url]/wp-admin/options-writing.php'>

(the error message from WordPress is in Italian)
That's fine, but the user won't notice that if he/she hadn't run BloGTK 2.0 from a terminal (for example, from a menu) as no GUI error message is displayed.

Ah, I see that the above-cited Exception message appears in the status bar also; I don't know if this is the intended behaviour for every other exception; if it's as so, please discard this report.

I'm not convinced that having the raw status message reported in the status bar is particularly acceptable - not user friendly.
