It's an OpenGLDrv thing...no fix planned.

When Eve is in Flynn's hideout, and he's looking at the screens, there
should be footage of his men being shot by guards before the screens go
to static...instead, they're just grey. I don't think this is crucial
elsewhere in the game (security cameras render fine, etc).

Just you, I think, but it's compatible with win32 players, so use the
in-game browser.

Background stuff, non-critical; There's an advertisement for G4 (the cable
channel) on one of the walls in CTF-Chozo, for example. It's supposed to
be animated, and isn't.

Devastation exposes some AL bugs that UT2003 doesn't. We're on a newer
CVS snapshot than ut2003, too, since the older one doesn't work well at
all (Eve is speaking at a whisper in SP0M0-TheLab, etc).

No plans to fix unless something really important is wrong.
