Hang in there John. Remember this is totally free software being developed
by folks in their spare time. I'm amazed they're doing it at all. It takes
a lot of commitment to open source code to dedicate one's time to its
development without any remuneration. I understood that the solution was
that there would be an option in the preferences in version 1. Let's be
patient at least until version 1 comes out. From what I can see, there is a
lot to do and I'm sure everyone has their pet bugs they want to see
squashed. I know I do. Let's all go to Bugzilla and cast our votes!
