Thanks, I used this as a checklist.
I've sorted out all of the problems but there's a new one to work on: Clicking the Start AQBanking Wizard crashes. It doesn't look from the backtrace like it's even getting that far... and it works fine on Mac and Linux.

> A missing gsettings schema will indeed crash the application, or more precisely it will abort it. Same effect to the user... This is a deliberate design decision of the GSettings folks. Their reasoning being that an application is supposed to know its schema so a missing one is considered a fatal error.
