For some unknown reason, my mail client usually select the list as
destinatary when replying, but sometimes it selects the original sender. I
didn't notice that I was having this conversation "on private" with
raster. With his permission, I forward it FYI.

It's ok, raster. I had realized that. This mail is not only for you, but
for the commnunity who is willing to use your image a "usable phone" ;)

Yeah. I think something more has to be installed, but I have no idea.
Perhaps someone manage to get it working.

I have to send a picture, but I can't right now. If that helps, first time
it happened to me was when I was trying to set other theme than the
default. When changing, it got to that state. The other times is after a
reboot. Maybe there's a better way to shutdown e than calling 'poweroff'.

No. That's not my problem. When I press the applet, it shows a nice
window, and then you can select wifi, lan, etc. But inside the window you
can't see the networks. Then, I press "Select Network" or something
similar, and the window disappears.

Ok. Now I know that it was not intended to work ;)

Ok. I have just remembered that yesterday, when I powered on the phone,
the alarm started to sound. But the alarm "window" was absolutely blank,
so I had to open a terminal, look for the process and kill it. Today it
didn't start, but I think that's because issue 2.

Ok. I'll look it.

And I think everybody in the community is thankful for that. Just in case,
I wasn't trying to blame you for each thing that doesn't work on my phone

Thanks for your responses.
