muse does hackish things, and unity does hackish things. and if TWO
programs want to do that, they'll probably collide.

hrm. unfortunately, i cannot run ubuntu in a vm, i cannot turn that PAE
setting on. the box is greyed out. robert, is there any trick? or
alternative kernel option or anything? (not that i would expect the
ubuntu folks do anything useful which might confuse idiots -_-)

compiling unity on debian seems to be not an option either as looks
pretty time consuming. installing ubuntu on another partition seems

if i have time, i could try to simply turn off a) the menu-bar sharing,
b) the MDI-windows or c) both.
then unity users only lose that feature, but still can use muse in "the
old way".

robert, if i find the time, can i send you a patch and ask you to try it
out :)?

If you can do that it would be perfect. 
Will try to install ubuntu on hardware tonight and it would be nice to try a fix :)
