I'll take the credit then! ;-) Honestly, I'm really glad this  
distribution is being useful to more people (it was originally  
targeted at my students; I don't even use Windows myself).

I do not touch anything other than what is in the site-start.el file.  
I had someone write to me privately just this week about the toolbar  
and I couldn't be of much help since I never use the Emacs toolbar  
myself. Perhaps does it have to do with the fact that the GNU binary  
I use is not compiled with support for fancy image formats? I tried  
to recompile Emacs with image support for preview-latex (part of  
AUCTeX), but it didn't work "easily" and I just gave up after  
installing tons of libraries.

I, too, use C-c C-n to submit lines one at a time.
