things going.  Thanks also to the Orca and Ubuntu communities for

Based upon the discussion, we just made a couple changes to the Orca
code base that hopefully address the major confusing issues you ran
into.  We prayed to the GNOME 2.16 release gods to let us get them in,
and they approved.  So...your questions really helped out here and
should hopefully help others avoid the same problems when they use Orca
V1.0 (due any day now!!!).
