I quite like SM2 as well. However on linux I still have a few issues.
I'm not so sure how "very quickly corrected" these are:
1. New Message notification is not working (at least for POP3 accounts).
This requires that you manually check for new messages - see:
This is a showstopper.
2. Flash w/full screen crashes. See the thread "[Linux] SM 2.0a3pre -
Full screen mode Flash Crashes SM" in the mozilla.dev.apps.seamonkey
group. I'll try to file a bug later tonight or tomorrow.
3. Multiple master password prompts. See:
4. Command line startup commands are no longer started by the order in
which they are entered, example: 'seamonkey -mail -browser' no longer
opens the mail window first and then the browser window. See:
[Bug 457497 - SM 2.0a1 does not follow commandline preferences]
This _is_ an issue that, while an irritant, does have implications for
commercial environments/setups that use 'seamonkey -mail -browser' to
open their SeaMonkey suite.
