I didn't get chance to investigate further because Thing crashed and
then the whole machine locked up.

When I restarted my Thing settings were mangled. All the window and
icon settings had gine because thing.inf was empty.

I stripped the binaries:

highwire.ap3  630,174  old gcc4
highwire.app  675,305  new gcc4

I had also updated the other rpm stuff from Keith. It must
be something different in the debug symbols.
