That makes a big change in the size of Xprogs.gz, 656kb -> 1.31mb?

The services control box seems to work well in partial testing of start/stop dbus, etc

Very small point, but is it possible to have the exit icon as the first or last icon in the wbar display (somehow that's where you'd expect to find it)?

Yes, it is a nice improvement, I like it. Now I have to add init.d style script for HAL and WICD  >:(

BTW isn't it a TC tool and not MC?

I will move the exit icon to be first.
