            very nice...
            I went through many hotline clients today, ranging from working, proprietary, to seg fault on start. This client has been by far the best I have tried today and will be the client I will recommend to my fellow linux buddies... Great work!!!

            strange bug
            For some reason, the task bar will only list the first few items queued up for download. After that, even if gtkhx is downloading stuff it appears blank in the task bar and will usually freeze. This is in RH 7.2 with the stock 2.4 kernel (2.4.7) on a Dell Inspiron 8100. Other than that, really nice hotline clone!

            Ay Caramba!
            Gah! I made a huge mistake. I forgot to change the #include to #include "history.h" in some of the source. If you are using 0.6 and it does not compile, I advise you to get the CVS version until 0.6.1 comes out...#)($*

            Grab latest CVS GtkHx -- It no longer needs readline, I took the history code from libreadline4.

            Hmm...My workstation has readline 2.2.1 installed but I believe my debian system has the most recent version of readline installed. I think I can fix this though; I am only using the history code of readline so maybe I can bundle it with my package.
