    At the moment gnupg doesn't support file locking via AFP shares, which means
    that GPGTools won't work, if the HOME directory of the user is setup on a network share.

    There's a workaround which requires the user to completely disable file locking, in some cases,
    this might however corrupt the keyrings, if two processes access them at the same time.

    Definitely NOT what we want.

    In order to work around that, the user could create a folder on the local harddrive with the correct permissions
    and create a symlink from the network share to that folder.

    The installer should detect a network share and if file locking doesn't work, it should tell the user about the problem
    and let them choose a directory where the folder is created and the symlink pointed to.
