Problems on all platforms
All editing operations are restricted to cells whose coordinates
are within +/- 1 billion.
Dragging the sash (the thin vertical bar separating the file panel
and the viewport) can result in ugly flashing.
Scroll bars are not updated correctly while resizing the window.
Golly has serious problems with Ubuntu's Unity interface. For example,
selecting a modal dialog like Control > Set Rule can freeze Golly.
Most (all?) of the problems can be avoided by disabling the global menu bar.
