Okay, thanks.

True, but these are the standard Sugar icons for "insert object from Journal" and "keep in Journal". I think it's better to use the same icons as other activities.

Great :)

Did you try my 4.0.2337 rpm which fixes the drawing speed issue?

Also, here is a trick to do Smalltalk hacking on the XO: simply copy image and changes from /usr/share/etoys to /home/olpc/.sugar/default/org.vpri.EtoysActivity/data and also symlink the sources file. When you launch Etoys, this image will be used, and you can save it as usual.

That's how I made the bug fixes, all on the XO :)

Also, since os45, you can use olpc-update to get new OS versions. This will leave the home directory alone, and is faster too:

	olpc-update f11_xo1.5-46

Did you upgrade the firmware? A lot of these issues have been fixed.

Yes, the flickering is annoying.
