This error message is indeed issued when it tries to run tools from
the garmin-forerunner-tools suite (in file

However, I do not see anything more that we can do than issue a 
a more informative error message, as indeed the garmin-tools cannot
run when that gps_babel module is loaded.

BTW (now talking to Christian and Noel), is there a reason why pytrainer
depends on gpsbabel and not on garmin-forerunner-tools (or on 
gpsbabel|garmin-forerunner-tools) ? OTOH, if pytrainer can be run without
accessing a GPS device than these should only be Recommends, I reckon.
