I much prefer the splinterz version, but it has two problems for me. First is that the size of the grid changes back and forth between squares and tall rectangles, about half the time when I click on it. For example, I'll want to enable all the medical labors on a dwarf. When I click "diagnosis" all of the squares will change to rectangles which moves the labor checkbox for surgery down about an inch or two on my screen. When I click that one they change back into squares and move back up. It's way more annoying than it sounds.
The other problem is that dwarf fortress seems to crash sometimes when saving and I have the splinterz version running. It's very intermittent so I can't even be sure that DF is the problem, but it seems like it.
I built this for use on Ubuntu 12.04 32 bit. I don't see either of these problems on the "normal" DF.
Has anyone else had these issues at all?
