I compiled version 1.1.12 under mint. However I never observed the problem
you speak of so I couldn't say how to fix it. I could send you the binary
I made if you like. However I hit upon various other problems, and it got
a bit mangled while trying to make it work. It does work (I use it every
day), but it probably has bugs.
