Spent much of the night in a lab on an Ultra 1 tracking down the multi-depth bugs in gnome-games that Miguel mentioned he wanted fixed. Ugh. Some of those programs are a mess, and so my fixes were non-optimal, but honestly, I don't have time to do it all right.

In the process, found what I think is a bug in libgnomeui (gnome_about_new and associated helper functions). Submitted a patch to gnome-hackers, we'll see how it stands up. It's quite short.

Still left to do is merge in the docs for Iagno that were submitted. I honestly believe it's a miracle that there are any user docs in GNOME, considering how much it sucks to merge them into the build process. I've looked at 5 different modules for the correct way to do it, and all 5 have a different method.

After that, I guess I can release a new GNOME Games. I'd still like to hear back from someone in the translators camp (if only to hear that my mail got through), but I'm not going to wait. It looks like over the past few months the translations have become pretty complete anyway.
