Great news!  This fixes the "Coot slow on Intel HD4000 graphics" problem.

Now the only problem is that your binary packages use a libpng version
that is not compatible with the *.png icons supplied by my system.
So I get a screenful of warnings on startup and all the icons show up blank.

It's not your fault that libpng can't seem to get its act together and provide
back/forward compatibility, but the problem could be worked around by
including compatible icons in the binary package rather than referring to
system-supplied icons that are version-dependent.

        Happy Cooting everyone,
