I installed it a few minutes ago and the computer hasn't exploded yet.<g> I'll try to do more testing tomorrow.

Installed on Light B3, ignoring deps (GConf, ORBit2, avahi, gnome-vfs, libbonobo, libgnome...). No problems noted so far.

These deps are not a problem with VL Standard, which contains all of the above and more. For Light it becomes somewhat of a dilemma, though.
