And it works there, too. Of course the unity interface probably isn't
very compatible with gretl's UI concept, because the menu bar is at the
top of the screen, detached from the window. It's very nice if you have
a maximized window, but not so with multiple windows. (Anybody knows how
to change that without deactivating unity altogether?)

Apropos: In the changelog for 1.9.5-1 it says: " * debian/rules: Still
configure with  '--disable-sse2'" Does that mean that SSE2 (for RNG
AFAIK) is not enabled here?
