Cool :-) you did indeed get that bit right - not obvious is it ;-)
hopefully when we switch to gmake we can clean all that set_soenv.in

Heh; I guess default_icons/ should have a bus-load of artwork in it.

Wonderful - thanks; merged it now - I added the 'sleep' inside
zenity_close - to avoid it being on the other code path.

And thank you for submitting a fix ! much appreciated; I've removed the
task from the Easy Hacks wiki page to avoid overlap. What would really
help is the finding of other easy hacks for others ;-) [ we are running
shorter over time ... ]
Of course, some more feature work precisely here might be nice ;-) eg.
if we are building from an interactive terminal, on Unix, and we have
DISPLAY= set, and we have zenity installed - it might be nice to default
that flag to on. I also needed to do some tweaking to make it work
properly with parallel building - eg. autogenning with:
--with-num-cpus=16 --with-max-jobs=4 --enable-zenity
And I hope that the open3 module works nicely on Windows / Mac -
supposedly it is 'core'.
Anyhow - thanks ! is there anything else you'd like to work on ?
