New Test Client

Here's the new Vendetta Test Client. As always, test it at your own risk. Please report any problems via the messageboard (there'll be a new Beta3 thread). Again, do not expect a lot of "improvement" type changes, we've mostly focused on fixing bugs and crashes. This does have some minor graphical changes to the black asteroids.

New ports:

MacOS X PPC/Intel fat binary. If anyone has an Intel mac, please test this and let us know if it runs. The PPC side has been tested down as far as a G3 on OS 10.2.8.

Linux / AMD64. This is the first Beta build of the new client to include a Linux/AMD64 binary.
