Could you send me a copy of your index.xml file so I can debug whats going

| I found two things to tell you:
| The first one deals with the options dialog. Here I've defined a new category 
| (for example animals). When I then go to the member groups configuration, the 
| new categories are missing. They need a program restart to appear.
I'll put this on the bug list, but its not important enough to start
messing with things a few days before release.

| The second point deals with the handbook. Perhaps I just didn't fully 
| understand the passage about "adding preview images to the browser", figure 
| 3.4 "Images for each Individual Person". What I didn't understand from the 
| documentation is this: I have to choose large list view or large icon view to 
| see the individual previews. (I had the small list view running and didn't 
| see anything and just wondered why).
Well seeing the images in small view, wouldn't really make much sense as it
would just be a single blop.

| One point I liked (besides others of course ;-)): As I've seen in this 
| snapshot (perhaps you implemented it some snapshots ago, but I just ran into 
| it this evening) the previews for the tooltip (ctrl - t) are generated along 
| with the tooltips for the browser. So the tooltip is working nicely even on 
| my slow machine (P-III, 450 MHz).


PS: Reimar, I sent you an error mail from another machine, 
please let me know if you didn't get it.
