Glad you like it, so do I.

The rollout window is not slow, but flickers sigificantly. Maybe it could
use the same fix the match list window recently had? Check out yourself, if
the 18.5 MB download size is too much I could remove a number of files
included for "out of the box" runs. You have most of the 18.5 MB on your
disk already.

Pole pole. GTK 2.6 for Windows is still "release candidate" and there were
some real bugs in combination with gnubg, see the first mail. Finally, the
packaging needs to be improved, e.g. the gtkrc. These are not show stoppers
at all, but a lot of small issues needed to be solved.
