r10101 gtk/ (add-dialog.c tr-core.c util.c util.h): (trunk gtk) #2864 "when adding a non-BitTorrent? magnet link fails, explain why to the user" -- implemented for GTK+ client for 1.90

Here's the revised message in the GTK+ client:

primary text: "Unrecognized URL"

secondary text paragraph 1: "Transmission doesn't know how to use \"%s\"", url

secondary text paragraph 2: "This magnet link appears to be intended for something other than BitTorrent?. BitTorrent? magnet links have a section containing \"%s\".", "xt=urn:btih"
