Known problems:

- Sometimes if a new job is received and the captcha is shown, only a part of captcha image is visible. In this case you need to click on "Settings" or "Info", then the complete image will be shown!
- Use "minimize" and "on top" options if the answer field cannot get focus after receiving of a new captcha
- some BMP captchas cannot be shown (empty captcha problem)
- @Mac OS X users: close the app with the clicking on the "red dot", if you want the app properties to be stored.
