Please check the new 0.19b. It has a new layout, with less windows popping-everywhere-except-where-you-want-them.
Once you have decided which layout you prefer, go fill the survey and let us know about your opinion!
Note that 0.19 is based on latest CVS with just the GUI modified. The GUI changes are NOT in CVS (i.e. 0.19b is not committed to CVS).
