I wonder if this is the same crash I see when trying to view dive
details. Unfortunately, on my crash there is no debug output that
would help at all to know what goes wrong.

I sent a patch for this a day or two ago, but it has not yet been
reviewed by Dirk.

Isn't that an icon indicating that you can swipe left/right to view
menu or other screens. It should also have triangles to left and right
if you have other screens available that way. (To be honest, I find it
a bit odd as well.)

I pretty much agree on these. Some clever fellow should just come up
with a good solution for B. And C will probably mean a lot of
frustrated hours from one of our developers :D
