Yeah, the interface just threw me for a loop.  It appeared as a list of 
options.  It was not entirely clear that you had to scroll left/right to 
get options to change.  Perhaps a different UI scheme (something more 
standard) would be better and more intuitive; at least a little arrow 
indicator perhaps next to the option to denote the fact that you can in 
fact go left/right to change it.

Why the change from the popup window scheme?  That was at least 
intuitive; you had a few buttons to choose from and it did not present 
itself as a listbox.
