gnash is now only in etch-test, and unless it improves a lot the next
few days, it will not be included in the release.  The pakcages in
etch are included in the release, while etch-test is a testing and
staging area.

No idea about these.  I have nothing against us installing them by
default, as long as we adjust partition sizes accordingly.  I propose
we add the gtk stuff to the standalone (and also the workstation)
task.  Any objections?

Yes.  Not sure how to fix it, though.

Not sure, but it is set in /etc/kde3/kioslaverc.

Thank you for the test results.
