It doesn't bother me much. Just to let you know: The issue with the messages counting up at the right top is still there with 0.4.20. 1200 messages right now. At some point 10 pop up windows opened which asked by whether I want to update to 0.4.20-e or so, I said yes with one window which should have updated it.
Also I made two small transaction and it it's pending since then (10 minutes ago or so). listtransactions also says they are pending.
"getinfo" returns: average_delegate_participation: 37% and network_num_connections: 9.
If there is a way I can make this feedback more productive let me know!
