"GoodBye" was part of the 0.5.2 release
"Hello" is part of the unreleased development version.

I tested a few minutes ago: both work on my system.

Plase grab one of the nightly snapshots to give the
development version a try.
(There's nothing to fear, it's mostly bug fixes and new drivers)

If it still does not work then please post more information about
your configuration to the list.
