Dear Thorben,
good suggestions! Creating an index.html file in my home directory rendered
perfectly. And yes, entering an URL and waiting for about 2 minutes, and all
of a sudden it is working quite well!

>From experimentation, it seems that entering a URL in the address bar causes
it to pause. What is most distracting is the fact that the location bar's
url reverts to that of the current page, even while the new page is pending.
There is no progress bar either, so it appears like the new URL was ignored.
But it does appear, eventually.

Following links within a displayed page works quite well. I'm guessing
methods remain to be added, by the amount of FIXME messages appearing while
in use.
Thanks for the reassurance, it is good to see it's working.
