It's good for Debian and other distro package users but not for
Windows and binary from source users, since we distro just provide
one version for each release.
- set disable auto update check configuration by default
- and for Windows users, install wizard provides enable option
is best solution, IMO.
But I'm not sure whether upstream work on this issue, until then,
just specify --disable-updatecheck (and maybe --disable-updatecheckplugin?)
for Debian package is simple.
