Known issues

Screen flickers sometimes, especially in system dialogs - in extreme cases may black out every other keypress (seems to be a vsync problem).

Strings with non-Latin characters contain glitches (should be blank).

New bug in the Categories view: Using L/R Trigger to skip to Previous/Next letter does not scroll properly if the new selection is offscreen.
