Yes, I've noticed a fair amount of 3D flakiness (including the color
picker), but I'm reluctant to mention the more minor things.  Some day I'll
probably update the Wiki to make board design a little easier to understand,
but I'm not sure of the best forum for describing workarounds - the Wiki
isn't the usual place to do this.  On the other hand, I don't want to waste
anyone's time reporting things that seem pretty trivial.  

BTW, I guess I incorrectly quoted myself when I initially replied since the
point of my post was to discredit my original thought that boards.xml was
purged due to its size.  I think there are a few blank lines between my old
and new entry.
