Fixed now in SVN. This was a mistake in my part when doing the commits, 
put the wrong one in the wrong directory.


If anybody wants to restore the "%" in the meantime, simply edit .cshrc 
in your homedir and change the "#" to "%", easy enough :)

Yea, it works great when it works, but it tends to crash more often than 
it needs to, probably due to something in the linux emulation. We have 
somebody starting on the native flash port in a week, and hopefully 
switching to it down the road will fix these crashes. Then at least when 
flash dies, it should be an actual flash bug, and not some weird linux 
syscall anyway :)

Correct, the 177.80 driver is better, but nvidia still has a few things 
to go to make it work perfect :)

If you or anybody continue to find nvidia bugs, please be sure to report 
them to nvidia, as I've done with the slow desktop click performance:

Several folks have reported this with the update to OO 3.0. I'm looking 
into it now, to find out why the PBIs aren't getting installed properly.
