The toolbar button calls (save-buffer-as), not (save-buffer). Can be
changed in xsiag/window.c, function init_toolbar. This should really be in
a Scheme module instead.

The statusbar displays the buffer name, not the file name. The code is in
csiag/window.c, function activate_window, if anyone wants to hack on it.

If the cursor (the point) is in the highlighted text (the block) the whole
block is changed, otherwise only the point is affected. I don't think that
is documented anywhere, but it is broken as designed.
