I have installed e17 completely from experimental, I suggest installing it 
completely from there - theres no evas-loader-* or evas-saver-* package at 
all on my system. E17 itself runs (great performance although in software 
mode, holy raster!), but the taskbar (or whatever it's called in e) doesn't 
show open windows... There were some other things I noticed, but don't 
remember now. :)
