it happened when I downloaded the zips with Firefox. I have no idea if I have closed PilBox properly before, will try again. The first download (calc) went fine. Opening the second download which I think was "demo" with PilBox made PilBox install it and now I had two app buttons to choose from. Hitting the new one gave me an blank page with the text "not found" and no navigation buttons at all. >From there I somehow got to the state that the main screen showed 3 buttons while the settings screen only listed 2 installed pils.

I don't have any explanation why else the main demo screen would react perfectly upon first invocation and get dramatically slower as I click back and forth thorugh the demo.
