uncaught RuntimeError: could not open display

Bug Description

If one runs "soundconverter" with no X and forgets the -b/--batch option, it crashes with a Python exception rather than catching it and displaying an own (possibly more helpful) error message.

Reproducible with 2.0.x: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/807075

Dunno whether this is something you would want to fix. :-) It triggers tools like ABRT (the Automatic Bug Reporting Tool in Fedora), which then prompt the user to report it as a bug.

Related to the soundconverter.settings['mode'] variable, I fail to find code that evaluates it:

$ grep settings *|grep mode
$ grep gui *
settings.py: 'mode': 'gui',
Binary file settings.pyc matches
Binary file settings.pyo matches
ui.py:def gui_main(name, version, gladefile, input_files):
Binary file ui.pyc matches
Binary file ui.pyo matches

This is not so simple to fix.
GTK code is used all over the application now...
