[Qgis-user] Ubuntu version of QGIS - some crashes and bugs

I followed Giovanni's suggestion and compiled 1.1.0 to take a peek at
what is coming. The map composer now renders quickly, which is great!
I am also discovering a lot of other new features and polishing which
is really nice.

I realize it's still a work in progress but I encountered some strange
issues that are maybe my own fault for not setting some compile time
setting, so if someone can straighten this out I will be very happy:

- whenever I close and then restart Qgis all the plugins previously
activated, get deactivated
- the north arrow plugin is complaining about not being able to find
the north arrow pixmap
- a lot of the buttons in the UI don't have their usual text
description inside them
- at the project properties Coordinate Reference System tab I don't
get any projections listed

I didn't install to the standard location, and chose a directory under
my home folder.

Thank you for helping
