Opps, sorry about that. I Should have mentioned, that for this Alpha, 
please skip the optional components section. Those will be on CD3 
eventually, and our build server is still busy cranking them out. I'll 
try to have them ready for the next alpha in a week or so.

Yea, that is a new bug, I've seen it here on my widescreen desktop. I'll 
get that fixed up for the next alpha as well :)
