Cog in (Fedora 14/15) Linux still have some problems:

a) Keyboard input differs from "traditional VM" and makes it almost
impossible to enter accented characters
    like áéíóúãõâêô etc...
b) FFI is not completely compatible with "traditional VM" and certain
things like CroquetGL just won't work like
    they do with "traditional VM"
c) Compiler recompileAll crashes CogVM
