And yes, handwriting recognition does work for fields.
The close icon is a very clean solution possible :-). Perfect.

After executing fbreader, you should have a file named "iliad_refresh.conf". It contains the timeout for updating the screen after having detected some message passing betwen the program and the X server (that file is created by my patched version of libX11.so). Edit it to have a larger value (it's in milliseconds), and test if the problem disappears.

However, the larger that timeout is, there is more lag between doing some action in the UI and seeing the feedback in the screen.

Joking, eh? It will be the dream of a lot of MRs come true ;-).

Good work.
