Thanks, many reports about this unexpected change in an over 10 year old
program. Needs to be repaired/wrapped. Still, I'm quite delighted to
know that the terminalserver feature is actually used by someone. ;-)

Not really, I rather use kvm (which does not support cut&paste between
guest and host anyways).

Also, a kernel bug related to e1000 network cards needs to be fixed:
and the memtest binary is broken. So, I'll
probably run a bugfix release in the next few weeks (hopefully find some
time for the CD version, too, which is still in my pending working queue).
