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.

while the settings screen only listed 2 installed pils. After closing PilBox
and restarting this worked again.

yes, I am using the arm32 plugin and I suspect the "life" display is
running in the background in hundreds of versions.
I don't have any explanation why else the main demo screen would react
upon first invocation and get dramatically slower as I click back and forth
thorugh the demo.
