I recently built (last night) a gcc4 hybrid of haiku and installed it, and
after finding a workaround for my booting problems, I have discovered that
Tracker is really unstable. I am having the broken icons problem that was
mentioned before (I understand that issue has been resolved) and also I am
having other problems as well.

1. Trying to open the desktop folder results in the tracker window losing
focus, but no new windows opening. That may be intentional, I am not sure,
but I don't like it.

2. Tracker completely crashed when I tried to open the "disks" (i think
thats what its called). I changed tracker's preferences so that instead of
displaying the volume icons on the desktop, it would display a disks icon
containing a link to the volumes. As soon as I opened it, I got a blank
window for a few seconds, followed by a message saying that Tracker messed
up and had to close.

3. After Tracker closed, there was no way to reopen it (That I could think
of). The Haiku menu was still visible, but no applications would open.

On top of all that, I can't boot without the CD. The bootloader is broken.

What action should I take? Am I the only one experiencing these bugs? Should
I write them up?
