Logging in works, autostarting the frontend doesn't here ...

I used to have filling issues, now I switched to autofill, might take a 
while to adjust, but I love it!

Only the fonts in the popup of bookmarks seem to be over here.

Never really noticed that.

One feature I really like is the storagegroups thingy, I fiddled with it 
to switch it on and to my surprise I got artwork for frequently watched 
serials like CSI and so on...
Lirc seems to be a bit buggy as well, but seems to get better with the 
latest update from the mythbuntu team.

All in All I like it!
