        By some coincidence, i just happened to have set up Squeeze on an old 
machine so i could have access to the Qt stuff i can't use on my Mac.  I noted 
that Freeciv in the Debian repository is somewhat behind the times - is there 
anything we can do on our end to encourage them to step up to a more recent 
version, or are we completely at the packager's mercy here?  Hmm, let me look 
up the packager.  In any case, i will poke around and see what i can find about 
these three problems.  I've a hunch #2 might have something to do with SELinux?
