The problem with saving is quite silly, really. You should be able to select a savegame slot and press Enter to get into edit mode, but the keyboard auto-repeat is so fast that it's pretty much impossible to get just one keypress.

There's a line in newgui.cpp that says

if ( _keyRepeatLoopCount >= ((_keyRepeatEvenCount > 1) ? 2 : 4) )

Changing it to something like

if ( _ keyRepeatLoopCount >= ((_keyRepeatEvenCount > 1) ? 3 : 65) )

gave me a much more reasonable behaviour.

Passing the ball (although its my fault for making newgui default :).

Comments on eriktorbjorns proposed fix?

The problem was caused by the switch to a seperate event loop for the GUI. Obviously it's a very bad idea to base timing on event counts. I'll change it to properly look at the time that passed instead.
