"pull" apparently freezing gedit : Passphrase prompt blocking the app on the terminal

Bug #238310 reported by Benjamin Thyreau

Bug Description

When using the "pull" command to refresh some ssh-Remote branch, the app was apparently freezing. It happened that SSH was in fact asking for my passphrase (to decipher my private key) on the original terminal where i launched gedit.
Note that on some Gnome configuration, the user may not be prompted on the original terminal, but on a nicer Gnome dialog, avoiding at least the user wondering why the app is frozen. Yet it would be usefull to warn the user of that behaviour.
Suggested patch attached uses the status-box of the "push" dialog for that.
