That used to be a problem on my Fedora box, but isn't, any longer.  Now I 
usually get an immediate response.

I'm still seeing that one.  It's annoying, but not a show-stopper.

Maybe they can't.  Some problems can't be fixed until we get 4.1.  On the 
whole, though, I agree with you.  It took a little getting used to, but I do 
like it.  I'll put up with its shortcomings while it is 4.0.  4.1 is only a 
few weeks away.
