Maybe, I haven't looked into that side of things.

I would ignore it for now.
Another point here is the 'exit' doesn't really exit! It only closes the current window.
This is especially misleading for the toolbar exit button, as the tool tip explicitly says 'Exit the program'

Hurrah, maybe even elevate viking to 'Beta' status on sourceforge :)

I would like my DEM-UsageOfHeightUnits branch merged since this addresses the error that DEM stuff only uses metres.
Then my plan on other (simple) fixes to come shortly are:
. Better 'sea level' control in DEMs - remove the +1 on DEM height index colouring
. Remove track thickness from DEM properties, use the colour as the min elev (sea) colour & change the colour property from a string widget to a proper colour picker widget.
. Fix some compiler warnings +
. Add keyboard accelerations to layer menus (track/waypoint, GPS, Geo Ref, & Maps) +
. Fix Track Draw by Velocity ( there's a bug when drawing in this mode about using the gc before setting it correctly - so I know how fix it now...)
. Fix Min/Max Track Velocity to use current speed units # *
. Don't save map cache directory if the default #
+ Probably be done as branches, others as single patch files.
# These depend on DEM-UsageOfHeightUnits being merged
* I had plans to improve the controls of the Track Draw by Velocity feature, but I suppose that will have to wait for 1.0
I would quite like the only known repeatable crash https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=3009431&group_id=83870&atid=570954 about the map auto download and GPS auto following conflict to be solved too.
I posted a bit about this on this mailing list a while ago.
I believe the best way would be a mutex in the struct _VikViewport which could then control the access to gdk_draw_pixbuf inside the vik_viewport_draw_pixbuf function.
Maybe I'll do that too....
