Nice tip, thanks. 11 pages back seems to be a lot.

BTW yesterday I've seen in %MEM column of 'top' in osso-xterm that 
browser takes 106% of available memory :-) I knew it is memory hog but 
this really caught me as surprise :-) The size was 136MB and my swap is 
64MB so perhaps that makes sense somehow.

This was posible in OS2007 too, thumb hit popped up large menu, stylus 
hit smaller menu which was consistent with behaviour or virtual 
keyboard. Looks like small menu just silently went away. I will miss that.

I forgot to include bug number here too, looks like I need vacation :-) 
The bug is http://bugs.maemo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=375
