 That's actually not true. Surprisingly I have at least one Linux box where
 emoticons are broken. Is is running Debian testing. That said I realized
 that it can be a bit hard to see this if one is upgrading from 5.0.7 as it
 seems to work then but after shutting the browser down and restarting it
 no emoticons are shown.  (This reminded me at one of the failure modes of
 our start script :/)
