When keysync-gui is run and accounts.xml doesn't exist (for example, because pidgin is installed but no accounts are configured), things appear to work, but the Convert button doesn't do anything.

Presumably this error condition should be handled for all OTR apps, perhaps as a generic "account info not found"? Or better yet, just don't show the app if it is installed by no accounts can be read.

There is supposed to be detection based on PidginProperties.files, but I guess that either has a bug, or is not complete. I don't think there should be any "account not found" dialog. If everything required for reading from that app is not present, then it should not show up in the GUI.
