The main purpose of 0.3 was to test the Python script I wrote for  
doing updates, and nothing changed in the underlying tlmgr commands.

If someone who sees X11 run can tell me /exactly/ what steps are  
required to cause this, please let me know.  This absolutely should  
not happen.  Did you ever use the tlmgr Perl/Tk GUI?

Actually, almost all of the toolbar icons are an abuse of Apple's  
standard icons and the human interface guide.  Improved toolbar icon  
designs are welcome.
