I'm unable to load that png at the moment, however if it's telling you that it can't write to the profile drive, that's the one. I unfortunately can't make disk images with Lisa Office pre-installed for download as that would be a copyright violation, sorry.

You'll have to wait until the next release, at which point most of these bugs will be fixed.

It's spending a lot of time building the images (xpm's) from wxStrings that are used for the skin and the animation. It does the same on the other platforms (except windows where it uses bmp's instead). It's built on wxWidgets, so there's an extra layer of API's in the way, but even so, it's fairly fast once it gets started - at least on more modern machines.
