   In my case, in order to compile RC2 it was just necessary to touch
the main configure file ($ touch configure).

   I comment my impressions on RC2:

1) The link http://www.terra.es gives rise to the error:

Error de lectura XML: mal formado
Ubicación: http://www.terra.es/
Número de línea 20, columna 103:
if(c){var i=c.indexOf(n+'=');if(i>-1){var j=c.indexOf(';',i);return 

The same web page gives no error on Firefox 4.0 (FF4) or IceCat 3.6.16.

   Now previous tabs are recovered (likewise the position of the main
window), but the ones fixed appear unfixed. In FF4 they are recovered
as fixed if they were quited so.

   Fixed. Now markers are recovered from previous session.

   In RC2 the option is enabled, but the recovered tab is a previous
tab in the history, not the last one removed. In FF4 it works.

   This is not yet present, not even in FF4. Is there a way to enable
this option?
