i386 Alternate CD
HP Pavilion XG823 desktop, Celeron 700, 256MB, Nvidia MX440
All updates as of 20080721 installed via apt-get.

Testing New Versions link at top of page doesn't jump:
Testing section says "see the Community Testing page" which doesn't exist:

Favorite bug:  bug# 247120 (dri2 missing)

Ghost line appeared in splash (picture attached).

Movie player couldn't open 128-bit mp3 stream from Radio Wazee
(http://wazee.org).  Made several attempts.  It does open the pls file
and add the channels to the playlist.  VLC succeeded.  Manually
installed liblame, gstreamer bad/ugly plugins, etc.

"Create archive" in Thunar resulted in blank window after archive type
selection (xsession-errors and screenshot attached).

Quick search box in Synaptic is non-functional.

Gnash doesn't play anything on Youtube but the interactive chart on
this page works:
If Gnash depends on DRI2 then that could be the problem.

System Monitor crashes when I select the File Systems tab
(xsession-errors attached).

This is an informal test as I was just trying to verify that XFCE
doesn't support the XDG menu specification correctly in regards to
user submenu configurations.  This makes applications installed by
Wine end up in the "Other" submenu, including Wine Notepad which is
included with the Wine package (screenshot attached).  Same problem in
Hardy.  How is anyone going to believe that XFCE is a cheap Gnome
clone when it can't even get the menus correct? :D
