Yes, these issues are mainly related to the new Xorg 7.4 update. I've 
been bug fixing it over the last week, and I've gotten it working 
properly again, and I think its a bit faster even. Also, I've fixed 
issues installing with nvidia cards. I'll let everybody know when ALPHA2 
is ready for you to start playing with.
