    I’m currently testing Ubuntu 10.04 and surprisingly noticed that 2.04 crashes immediately as soon as I click on a group folder and creating e-mail account doesn’t work (the Next button doesn’t work). Okay, let’s test the Alpha and this one works much better. It doesn’t crash (until now) and I can create e-mail accounts. However both versions have in common that the favicons and folder icons are not shown in “Bookmarks”.
