The shared apps bundled with 2.3 are all working fine for me (though the machine I've installed 2.3 on didn't have a pre-2.3 version installed before).

Shared Rasmol, on the other hand, behaves as described above. I had reported this earlier as a bug, but since it's a Shared Rasmol bug and not a Toolkit bug, the bug was closed. My understanding is that a new release of Shared Rasmol which addresses this problem is planned.
