Not sure what I can do about this for now :(

I've made the font a tad smaller, which may help. If that doesn't work,
can you use a shorter sentence in Portuguese for this line instead?

See above ^^^

This is normal, since the mouse driver works in the console as well.

Fixed! I sent out an update menu translation file yesterday, already put

For some reason it looks like a few strings from the system manager
didn't make it into Pootle. Not sure if I'll get this fixed for 1.4 or not.

Fixed! If you re-run the Compiz fusion icon and its enabled, it'll ask
you if you want to stop from loading at startup now.

I'll send this over to Tim, see what he can find.

They are working correctly, we have defaulted to not using the "Win" key
as a shortcut for the KMenu. Instead it acts by default as a modifier,
which is used in a lot more places. (Compiz being one)
If you want to change this back to the regular KMenu shortcut, take a
look at this FAQ:

This only happens when you click a link to an PBI set to open in a new
window. (Usually on the forums) When you use pbidir it works as it
should. I haven't found a way in Konq to change this yet, for some
reason it assumes that opening something in a new window isn't a file.

Right now it looks like we'll be doing a RC2 this weekend, with the new
Xorg 7.3 in it, and all the fixes I've made over the past few days :)
