 yeah, it is. is the main.... err.... um....  i just double-
checked, so i'd be able to advise you and... err... the problem i
described (with the GridTest) seems to have... gone away!!

 *slightly embarrassed* :)

 however, clicking too fast _did_ end up with fifty little windows of
text (!)

 and the respect for text boundaries is definitely broken - shrink the
window to 300 x 400 with the kitchensink example (which is where i
stopped and moved to webkit, so all the _other_ examples prior to that
will work) and you'll see that the text in a column down the left hand
side end up all overlapping each other.  so, you get to see the top
few pixels of each word.

 if there's a way to enforce the displaying of text - for the _text_
to say "i need to be a total area of X in order to display my words.
if you make my width too small, i will _force_ my height to be larger
as i wrap the text".

just like an HTML <p> </p> does.
