  Thank you for these reports!

  Yes.  That should be cleaned.

  Hmm.  It could be a slot in the 'text' category.

  The button fro grabbing TestTile is changed and I personally like
the previous behavior (mouse down to get the tile).  The need for
really drag-out from parts bin is tricky.  I'd say we fix it.

  With these changes, it would be a bit more consistent.

  This is intended behavior.  For "the first time" it is instanciated,
the newly created guys trys to reposition itself.
