I finally got out of this mess by waiting. Maybe I would be useful to
add a debug level log saying that this check is starting and that it has
finished, because for now you can imagine that is a long-run behavior of

Was that intended to be run only one time after an upgrade? Since I
removed everything in /var/lib/GNUnet (letting /etc/gnunetd.conf), it
looks like the check is performed from an empty database too. So maybe
it would definitely be good to tell it to the user.

But even with a completely empty /var/lib/GNUnet/, gnunetd is seeking
for several minutes, even if I can't imagine what it can read/write
since the directory is only 4KB after some minutes of intense work.
That's really strange.

Sure, thanks. Hope this may help too.

PS: I'm currently working on our libgksu2 use in gnunet-gtk to make it
comply with new options (since now you can choose a custom config file
from the UI). I'll give you infos soon.
