And here's the current bug list:
 - the run from CDROM stuff doesn't work. I have a fix which I'll 
email if you need it now
 - the change-the-icon stuff apparently only works on NT
 - it also will fail unless you have Mark's Win32 stuff installed 
(this one I have a fix for).
 
I'm keeping a buglist on the download page, so I won't have to 
bother the group with these messages.
