I just tested 0103 on Sun Virtual box:
1-)It does not install to the hard disk. It switches to the CD.iso after
it starts partitioner.
On reboot it will not start the HD (Your first version installed to HD
2-)Analyze activity will crash if Presence tab is selected
3-) Browse does not start, does save yourself after delay
4-) terminal will not run if log out or shutdown is previously selected
5-) Shutdown can be done from terminal: sudo shutdown -h now works
