More bug fixes in 0.5.1

Epidermis 0.5.1 has been released. This version has much better error handling. If pigments are corrupted on the system, Epidermis will allow you to remove them (fixes bug #538715). And when Epidermis crashes, a user-friendly error message will appear, guiding the user to reporting the bug with Apport.
