+<em>Cut &mdash; Geek Alert!</em><br /> Some people offer large cash
+incentives. However, since I’m poor, I offer the following: Tell me how
+to achieve what I want without changing Gnome 2.6 and win a hug or one
+\$BEER token depending on your preference. Fix the issue I have and get
+it into Debian and win twice as much. Get it into Gnome upstream as well
+as Debian and win three \$BEER tokens. Some of the below are clearly
+bugs and I’ve filed bugs where I can. Some are usability issues and
+could be plausibly worked-around for one \$BEER token. Several of these
+were pointed out to me by people like
+<a href="http://www.livejournal.com/users/keybuk">Livejournal:keybuk</a>
+and have since come to irritate me. My current issue list:
+
+<ol>
+
+<li>
+Unable to drag/drop to create shortcuts from sftp:// (or
+[ftp://](ftp://)) urls open in nautilus windows. I want to be able to
+create shortcuts to bits of my home directory on my server using this
+technique.
+
+</li>
+
+<li>
+When browsing sftp:// URLs, nautilus leaves smelly zombie processes
+behind. I’ve filed a bug
+<a href="http://bugs.debian.org/257742">here</a>.
+
+</li>
+
+<li>
+Although it’s cute when it’s a small effect, the bug which causes the
+panel to wibble around can render panels almost unusable. I filed a bug
+<a href="http://bugs.debian.org/255608">here</a> about that.
+
+</li>
+
+<li>
+I can’t seem to get windows to go off the top of the screen, no matter
+how hard I try. This is <em>very</em> irritating when I’m grabbing a
+window with alt+drag to just see what’s underneath it
+
+</li>
+
+<li>
+There’s no UI element for turning startup notification on/off in panel
+launchers (or launchers in general
+
+</li>
+
+<li>
+There seems to be no way to hide mount icons from the desktop. My USB
+key provides `/mnt/keyfs` and `/mnt/cryptokey` and I don’t want the
+cryptokey one on my desktop.
+
+</li>
+
+<li>
+If I stick an emblem on a folder, or perhaps give it a custom icon, it’d
+be nice if that carried through somehow into the nautilus folder window
+which is for that folder.
+
+</li>
+
+<li>
+Nautilus should be able to distinguish XML documents based on their DTD.
+
+</li>
+
+<li>
+I can’t work out how to make my workspaces wrap at the edges. It’d often
+be faster for me to move one workspace-right rather than four workspaces
+left &mdash; <em>Note, `brightside` does not do what I want</em>
+
+</li>
+
+<li>
+I have renamed the Wastebasket icon on my desktop to “Dustbin” because I
+like that name. But the “Places” menu still says ‘Trash’ The right-click
+menu still says “Move to Trash” etc. This sucks from a consistency point
+of view. Either don’t let me rename the icon, or make sure it gets
+renamed across the board.
+
+</li>
+
+<li>
+The whole Gnome-DB stuff (particularly the mergeant stuff) appears
+riddled with bugs and generally crashy.
+
+</li>
+
+<li>
+<strike>I’d like the ability to hide icons in Nautilus windows. E.g. I
+don’t want \~/bin showing in my homedir, ’tis messy enough as it
+is.</strike> — Won by Thom May
+
+</li>
+
+</ol>
+Well, that’s enough for now. So fly my pretties and code fixes for me….
+Bwuahahaha (Or reply in a LJ comment. Please don’t mail me or I lose
+track)
