Very nice :-) Works well with the squeezeserver nokia770 theme when rotated. 
Mythweb is a little odd, but I've not looked into why. Dropdown lists don't 
seem to work so I can't select the mobile zimbra interface, but other than 
that the default interface seems to work!

I see what you mean about the rotation being weird. It seems to need a restart 
after the orientation change before it occupies the correct area too. i could 
see the menu button after changing from portrait to landscape but it wouldn't 
function, and the render width didn't appear to have changed, leaving the old 
image of the buttons from the settings dialog on screen. Conversely when going 
from landscape to portrait the buttons were usable, but further from the 
bottom than expected, and the bottom portion of the screen wasn't being used.

The first time I added a bookmark it segfaulted, but the bookmark was present 
when I restarted the browser. I haven't been able to reproduce this though, 
and the second bookmark added without problems.

I had to remove then reinstall before I got the new version. --force-reinstall 
left me with the old one.
