Likewise. I also found that the path gets messed up when you use
ipelets and they don't work after the first use. Probably because I
used IPEPATH=. because I was trying to make a .app package.

Well, it would have been nice but it's not like you paid for the feature...

That's because by default the two finger swipe sends scroll wheel
messages to programs (which is most commonly what you want), but in
some programs like IPE the scroll wheel is used for zooming. To make
it behave properly you have to specifically write code for the mac,
and I'm guessing Otfried doesn't have one. I might give it a go though
- Nokia added multitouch support in Qt 4.6.
