Display events of lesser importance using notification boxes. Allow to return to old behaviour using option switches in the new Preferences dialog. Sorry, should this annoy any users that got used to the old behaviour, but there has been so much criticism about so-called 'false positives' that it should better be the default not to show pop-ups for unimportant events. Just change the prefs if you're paranoid like me.

Patrol now gives a few hints on what may be wrong about
a certificate change, like expiry not being due or issuer
having changed and it makes an estimate on a possible
threat level.

Also, validity dates are shown using ISO standard notation
as the American mm/dd/yy order used by X.509 is quite
confusing for everybody else.

Expiration and issuance dates are also shown as number of
days in the future or past from now.
