If a package with no associated homepage link is selected after a package with an associated homepage was selected, then clicking the homepage link opens the previously selected package's homepage.
Tested with gpk-application 0.3.14.
This seems to occur on all systems.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Select a package that is associated with a homepage
2. Select a package for which the homepage link is null
3. Click the homepage link
The link opens the link associated with the most recently selected package with a non-null homepage link. This confuses users. It *should* either A) do nothing or B) display an error message (e.g. "No homepage found").

I'd expect this:
* when no URL: display "no homepage" text
* when URL: switch the cursor to "hand" when on the link
