That's really odd, I don't get that on Firefox or Chrome.  Can you
refresh your Javascript cache just to make sure?  Just save your
notebook, and then force a page reload.  Also, could you test on a
different browser and let us know if you see any differences?

Mmh, I do see a problem, not sure if it's the same you do:  If I
select a new cell type from the 'Cell' menu, the cells do indeed
change type, but the dropdown list in the icon toolbar isn't updating
correctly anymore.  Is that the behavior you see?

Glad to hear that.  Some inevitable growing pains, but I think we're
on the right track.
