I think the touchscreen problems may be related to the FW 4.0.0 (or later).
I never upgraded to that version because it caused more problems than it solved. On open2x it works fine.
I'll test the other issues tomorrow.
It's funny how everyone tosses out out O2X or 4.1.1 as I've been on 4.0.0 on the F200( B ) since it came out. I did update to O2X briefly and it broke more than I cared to fix. (Yes it is an impressive feat and I am not knocking the effort, that is a separate discussion.) I would be willing to go to 4.1.1 if I have to but all my touch screen programs (Animatch,Drench,ZDoom,Hexen,Exult,Albion,ScummVM,BoomShine,SpaceVarments,Poker,Sachunsung,Blocked,Blox,BennuGD etc.) are working just fine.
I've been running Gmenu2X 0.10test2 without problems for over two years so I'm not sure that the firmware may be the issue. I will defer to you on how you want to handle it as I fear GP2X development has lost favor to all its successors.
If you can restore the icon order and sub section graphics I would be grateful as the speed of this version is awesome.

Well my experience was perfect with open2x while FW4 added nothing except SDHC support (which was available as a patch before) and created new problems.
Returning back on topic, confirm that GMenu2X is running at least at 136Mhz.
If it was working for you with the previous version, it should also work now and it is working for me, but I had to point out that I'm not using the same firmware, I don't really know if that's the problem.
Maybe you can get confirmation by other users.
Changed default 136 to 166 a while back. Never lower.
Also noticed that screen contrast changed when using config section (SELECT) and moving cursor. Similar to what happens for sub section graphics.
The sub section graphics would be critical as I use it for emulator, java, and doom pwad selections. If that is not fixable I will have to got back to the previous version. Note: Just noticed that when I press any key but X/B/HOME once the sub section picture appears opaque and another press it is normal. When moving dpad pics disappear again.
Also noticed that fontSize=10 gets truncated on line 12. May be able to fix with a menu bar setting.
