Maybe move all the logic to updatesd and let it organize thing in
non-conflicting way? If a transaction is in progress while user clicks
on update icon, terminate the transaction and let pirut do its business,
and restart the transaction when pirut no longer needs access to
database? And if user selects to update packages, or list updates or
whatever, let updatesd enqueue that and do that after restarting the
former transaction, and while it is being done, inform about the
progress via dbus?

In fact I do not know, I'd rather not pretend that I understand that.
