> Going through the requirements of the application lifecycle:
> * You should have checked for basic problems with a profiler.
> * There should be user documentation in docbook format.
> * Your application should be completely translatable.
> Check.
> * There should be no krazy code checker issues reported.

> A couple of them were related to the HAVE_KGDIFFICULTY macro which

> These can be removed when Picmi is based on trunk.
> Many of the others also seemed like false positives (i.e. complaining

> There has been no review so far.

My comments:
 * You think you could give it a somehow bigger initial size? It starts very 
small the first time
 * Do you have a bigger res icon? Otherwise looks quite bad in my alt+tab 
 * Can you disable the "..." in the settings dialog and only enable it when 
set to custom backgroud image?
 * Maybe it makes sense that undo and load position are disabled if there is 
nothing to undo or no position to load?
 * Changing the solved streak color does nothing until i restart the game
