One other thing:
I really, really *hate* it when I can't uninstall a program,
especially if it's a trial version!
Your app successfully refused any attempt to get rid of it. That's not
just bad, that's simply rude.

Another thing I noticed while trying to reproduce the problem:
* file/foldernames with non-ascii chars in them aren't shown
correctly, and can't be accessed (try it: use the charmap tool to
create a filename which you normally can't create with your own
