I installed 0.9.8 in windows first, and was impressed with it. Lots of improvements over 0.9.7, even though that always worked good for me too.

Well... My problems started when I updated my linux version of 0.9.6 to 0.9.8. (Running mandrake 8.1)

First the theme was locked to clasic, and I only managed to change it back to modern after downloadeing another skin, change to it, and then changing back to modern. Very strange...

Then I had alot of crashes just when I was clicking around in the preferences.

The mousewheel also stoped working and that\'s *really* anoying. It worked perfectly before, and it workes good everywhere else in my system.

Finaly I noticed that the scrollbar on the box I\'m writing this in didn\'t work anymore, so I had to switch to konqueror.

I have heard only good things about this release, and the windows version works great for me, but am I the only one with these problems under linux?
