I fully understand why you prefer shapes, I'm wearing laser safety
goggles right now and can't distinguish the yellow and green very well
(not to mention that every shade of red looks the same). My reservations
about making the default are partly aesthetic (this can be fixed of
course) and partly a different perceptual problem: I have more trouble
figuring out how the "balls" line up when using the spiky shapes.

This is probably the bug where configure doesn't demand the latest
version of librsvg. The new theme takes advantage of some new features.

There are actually something like seven possible colours and they are
all different shapes now too. If you want to show off the most options
the way to do it is to start a four player game and take the shot
shortly before all the worms collide.

Are you absolutely sure you are using CVS HEAD ?
