Hello there,

I've compiled marble 0.4 successfully but however I have a few questions and 
unsure whether these are intended or not.

# kml file
Everytime I open a kml file example:
marble loses every single icons on the map . This happens on the 0.3.1 which I 
built for fedora and I noticed the same output on kubuntu feisty.

Perhaps marble is building without a buildrequirement.

# help -> about marble -> license agreement
It's blank!

# gpx file
How can one use it ? I've downloaded a gpx file from the net and open it with 
marble 0.4. But I see no effect at all. Is this intended  for the marble 0.4 
release or perhaps I'm using it in the wrong way?

# info about a particular city:
click on london -> datasheet of london opens
information for wikipedia is downloaded automatically
Results on:
 * release 0.3.1:  on datasheet dialog: marble says download completed 
 * release 0.4 : on datasheet dialog: marble says download failed! though 
wikipedia information is displayed. And on the second attempt (without 
restarting marble), on clicking london, the previous information of wikipedia 
of london isn't displayed. But instead it's blank.
