Yes agreed.

About the last -- no complaints about (that) in other places -- Ive recently
seen that on the html/stylesheets/javascript lists (not sure which)
there are also annoyed complaints about GG.

About the rest -- when people get annoyed they say and do things they
would not otherwise do. The sensible not-yet-annoyed-enough-to-lose-the-head folks should try to cure the annoyance rather than get
annoyed with it -- dont you think?

In short if we are programmers we should be thinking bug-fixes when we
are bugged :-) And what is put up here
(only yesterday BTW) is a dynamically loadable GG-bugfix.
