Full-stop. Period. Dot. Whatever, it's there now ;)

Yep. The timers and verbose logging options are going under "Advanced".

I put two of them in the filter dialog. I missed the other two (in the
general section) until you said that.

I've switched to photoshop (psd) format as all three programs can read psd
files. Or at least photoshop version 3 files. BTW, I think you mean layered
not vector. Last time I tried, neither photoshop nor the gimp support vector
graphics, but paintshop does to some extent.
