Check again for quoted messages after a short timeout #651

This addresses the problem of "Original message not found" that can manifest itself in bulk loading of messages (e.g. from the public chat server), resulting in a quoted message not being saved to the database when the quoting message is looking it up.

I went with the simplest solution: request the missing quoted message again after a short delay (doing it a few times with exponential backoff) and updating the quoting message accordingly.

this.copyFromQuotedMessage(message, attemptCount + 1);
}, attemptCount * attemptCount * 500);

quote.referencedMessageNotFound = true;

so first call and it fails, we return that it fails (instead of masking the failure), is this what you intended?

I guess so, with this PR we show the error and remove it as soon as we find the message (hopefully after 500-2000ms). I think it would be wrong to show that everything is OK at first and then (after 5 attempts or so) "oh wait, actually it wasn't". Also, if we close the app before the last attempt (so we didn't set the error), it won't ever get the chance to show this error.
