Thanks a lot for this.  I guess the problem with doing computer mockups
is that people expect them to fully work.  Most of the problems noticed
were simply because mock-up is, well, a mock-up, without full
implementation of the behaviour.

I wonder how would results be different if we used paper mock-ups as you
suggested one time.

Excellent: thanks.  I've added a bunch of comments there, and linked it
from our "User input" section on https://dev.launchpad.net/Translations

Well, reading the actual audio logs was very helpful as well.  Lots of
useful input there.

Thanks go to participants as well (I know at least one of them is
following this list as well :).
