Hi Kalle,

I upgraded flex in my scratchbox environment and now GtkLauncher is able to
open www.gtk.org in right way. I compiled flex version 2.3.35 and I replaced
the old version (/scratchbox/tools/bin/flex) by this one.

Maybe put this information on http://maemo.webkit.org/ would be very helpful
for other people, wouldn't be?

Thank you very much.
