(catching up on the last of my bugs)

So here for instance:

  1. Stage a poll.

  2. Stage an actor.

  3. Unstage poll.

This is now fixed.  You'll see a little circle appear in the vote
track, which is your staging/unstaging control for the actor.  (not
beautiful, but hopefully okay for now)

Also the placement of non-participants (non-voter, non-candidate) is

  1. Stage a familar poll.

  2. Stage yourself.

  3. Change to an unfamilar poll.

     You now appear as a mosquito base candidate instead of alone on
     an empty board.  That's your staging/unstaging control.

Also, you can now use the polltrack to change polls in the Wicket
count pages:!p!grfin
Somehow I forgot to code that before.

Finally, I prevented the stage loading on any page served to IE, which
we don't support yet.  It looked bad because errors were popping up,
e.g. on the bridge.

Please report any problems you see.
