Yes. But being poor, the cable company shut down my internet access
(typing this from a public terminal) so 0.2.1 may wind up being 0.3.0
before it gets online. Which sucks, cause I've fixed some stupid crash
bugs . . .

The plan is to push the various goodies and out of tree programs (like
mousepad, and xfmedia) into the Subversion tree when the CVS->SVN
switch happens, presumably this weekend. Mousepad won't be released
with Xfce, but you'll be able to get it from the same place, and my
goal is to not have any requirements beyond current stable Xfce.

If so, great.  I like its speed and its features (and lack of

Gah. Don't get this here. If I can't figure it out, when I get online
I'll send you a "debug version" to help track this down.

Also not something I get here. Are you saving to an NFS mounted
directory or anything funky like that? Linux, BSD, Solaris? What

Thanks. If these unrepeatable bugs keep cropping up I'm gonna need it . . .
