Ok.  None of them are fatal, though, so I'll let them wait for 0.1.1 or
0.2.0, depending on the amount of code changes required.  I'll release
0.1.0 today.

where you know which bugs you should work around and how :-)

That's a misfeature, related to your point 4.  The line that goes
through is, I believe, connecting the top cell to the bottom cell,
ie. it's the loop connection.  I believe it'll be fixed eventually
together with point 4.

True.  The current Edit window is a quick kluge I whipped up for the
demo back when you were here.  It'll need to be fully rewritten
(will have to wait for the 0.2 series).

Related to point 2.

I believe fixing this is a TODO item for Tuomas.  However, it will
probably have to wait for the 0.2 series.

I think I've heard of this before.  It may be possible to fix this in
later releases in the 0.1 series.

Known.  I'll leave evaluating and fixing this to Tuomas and Vesa.

FYI, Tuomas is away until 2000-10-08.
