Tried again after some time, with more success. Only had glitches again 
from the second to last image:

Firstly, on the second to last image the "stars" didn't react properly 
on a single click, and instead needed two clicks to register. Then, when 
clicking "save and next", I got some queer popup about whether I wanted 
to save or execute a file with some cryptic name. When dismissing that 
message by aborting, then clicking "save and next again", I was taken to 
the very first image.

A "direct" attempt to vote on the last image (via the thumbs overview) 
was successful.

Some other suggestions:

- When on the voting thumbs overview, clicking on an image should take 
to the voting page, not the viewing page.

- Having a means to sort the voting thumbs overview according to my vote 
would be a nice thing.
