I would have thought having just released T2 it would be more stable
than normal but I'm having issues with Evolution (for a while) and
gnome-terminal crashing. Haven't seen the issues with the panel at all
and the mixer applet seems to be fixed with todays updates. Oh and I'm
seeing the isssue with 'about me' but I don't use it often (I wonder
whether its linked with the evo issue as I think the data from there
is stored in e-d-s.
