Galaxy - thank you for revitalizing this mailing list.  It does feel
wrong when all discussions occur on our private development list, with
this public one staying silent.  Having some discussions in public may
encourage our actual users (who, unlike you, don't happen to be Owl
developers at the same time) to point out any issues and ask any
questions in public as well, rather than continue to approach us via
private e-mail...

Same here - segfault on Owl 2.0-stable, nothing on -current.  Given that
-current has been at 4.1.5-owl1 since Feb 20 2006, it should be safe to
sync the package in 2.0-stable to that version as well.  I'd appreciate
it if you do that.
