Hey kevin and christopher,

I'm not sure if you've tried this on linux, but I'm basically seeing 
just a white box as the splash screen.  then when the vergil window 
comes up, the little menu box comes up but it's really small with scroll 
bars.  I'm not sure if this is what you're seeing on windows as well, 
but i thought i'd let you know.
