Gridcoin 5.0.1.0-Leisure release

We are releasing a small maintenance leisure release to correct a few compilation problems on some platforms, and address a few corner-case issues that were already addressed on the hotfix branch, plus some other corner-case technical changes.

The most visible highlight of this release is the fixing of the display of transactions with messages prior to the hard-fork point and the new wallet backup file retention maintenance functionality.
