Strange thing that. I've downloaded the 40 minutes version. The only
thing I changed (as far as I know) to set verbosity to expert or so.
However, there was once Jaws 11 installed, could it have taken the
settings from there I wonder?
Highly unlikely since I've cleaned up all manually (otherwise the
newest version would not have started, not even in demo mode).

However, I do not see it as a bug, I actually didn't want the extra
information to be displayed by default since it may disturb or annoy
some old stagers.
