Mmm, and after about 10min of use now I'm seeing a really weird issue where
the detail view of the Journal entry is simply one big gray canvas with only
the toolbar icons and the back button being available. Additionally on the
main list view I can't get any popup menus (to copy/send Journal entries,
etc.) anymore. FWIW datastore.log is filled with entries looking like this

1259718621.729821 WARNING root: Unknown term(s):
dbus.Dictionary({dbus.String(u'limit'): dbus.Int32(5, variant_level=1),
dbus.String(u'order_by'): dbus.Array([dbus.String(u'-mtime')],
signature=dbus.Signature('s'), variant_level=1)},

Good night,
