Gadu-Gadu protocol update and patch

Current code gives the pointer to crc32 value. Then, when
ggp_send_image_handler function is launched, g_hash_table_lookup uses
a different pointer - to ev->event.image_reply->crc32. That's a
different pointer, so the image is not sent (because
g_hash_table_lookup returns NULL, and then imgid = 0 and there's no
data under that id).

Unfortunately g_hash_table_lookup accepts pointers as arguments, not
values. While I have the CRC, I need to pass its value to some other
function and get the imgid. If I am wrong, please correct me.

All what is needed is to store crc32->imgid pair and make it available
to ggp_send_image_handler function. When having imgid, I can retrieve
the image's data from purple_image_store and then send it to other
user. Current g_hash_table method doesn't work at all (it didn't send
any image I've tried to send, g_hash_table_lookup always returned
