Sigh. Yes, we know. I have not found the bug.

That I did not know. I remember that early versions did this even sooner, but I did not have trouble with the current version. Then again, I have not had it open for more than 10 minutes either.

That may be a hint for issue #2.

Yes. I am sure that it did work a while ago, but now it is broken. I don't know what changed, but it sure is an issue that would be good to investigate. I myself don't write OS X code beyond what is absolutely needed, so another OS X guru may be helpful. But it could also just be the host-independent screen driver.

Thanks for the list. Please also put those on the googlecode bug tracker. I know that I am not using it the way I should, but at least the bugs will be registered for future reference.
