Emacs on Snow Leopard Update

When last I posted, I was having problems compiling Emacs 23.1 on Snow Leopard, as well as problems with -daemon mode. It appears the upstream emacs repo (git:// has resolved the issues regarding compiling on Snow Leopard. Also, -daemon mode has become quite reliable. I can now create new frames and destroy them as often as I want, and Emacs won't crash. I do still have the issue where the modeline font gets garbled after the first connect, but that appears to be related to color-theme (I'm using color-theme-gnome2). If I remove just that one line from my .emacs, then the modeline problem goes away as well.
