note i got that backwards - the first one is the version that works in 
that it doesn't cause apps to crash.  it doesn't have multihead support, 
and pretty much all it has beyond 4.0.x is the new menu system (plus 
menueditor).  the second version is the version that i'm happy with 
design-wise, and has multihead support, but causes apps to crash.  this 
one is the one that won't draw a backdrop because there's no way to set 
the settings for it.
