[Bug 411358]

Hi,

Thanks mainly to Jonathan and jhorak work, I've come to find an easy
solution to manage this problem without patching/recompiling anything.

We just need to intercept the gconf_client_get_string call using
LD_PRELOAD to make it answer nicely on a search containing a '+' symbol.

You will find an example how to do it at http://git.auf.org/?p=auf-
poste-client.git;a=tree;f=lucid/auf-thunderbird-hack

This example is very specific to Ubuntu “Lucid Lynx” 10.04 LTS, because
it is our current concern for now. But it's only about 20 lines of code
so it should be easy to adapt to any other context.

Thanks to everyone for their comments here, which allowed me to manage
this problem quite fast, in about half a day!

Greetings, J.C.
