Similarly Debian. The author is aware of the problem on
GNU/Linux. Apparently works well on MS/Windows :-(

The author is on holidays at the moment and has said he'll have a look
at this once he returns. (Of course, source is available so anyone is
welcome to have a go at fixing it.)

It looks like a very nice package, once it works.
