1.5 did install. When it started up it asked if I wanted to use positioning data (GPS) and I said "Yes". It then crashed. I uninstalled and reinstalled, but it didn't ask about GPS the second time so that I could say "No" this time (must be cached settings somewhere). In any case, it continues to crash on launch.
EDIT: Perhaps someone else can try installing the 1.5 version and say "No" to the "use positioning data" promotion...?
