Maybe next time.  The tracker is at Alpha 3 and I have to deploy the
system with Hardy soon.

The Totem problem went away with more updates.  I added Gnome to test
bug #251337 (shutdown problem with ssh session active) and found that
Gnome's mixer insisted on routing everything to the on-board piezo
while XFCE worked correctly. (bug #251350).

After adding ubuntu-desktop I don't have a splash screen anymore.
Problem solved. :D

The create archive problem also disappeared.  I don't know if it's
from an update or by adding ubunutu-desktop some dependency was fixed.

Synaptic quick search problem previously reported as bug 244619.

System Monitor File System tab crash went away.

I was joking.  I observed the flame war a few months ago that Jono
helped resolve so I know all about it.

The XDG implementation problem affecting Wine is bug 250684.
