Then I may have misinterpreted Gary's comment.I apologize in that case.

But when I tested Martin's patch on my XO-1.5 , 0.88.1 build  , upon
starting an activity the pulsing icon animation was replaced by a
static grayscale svg icon of the activity ,whose screenshots I have
placed at http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Pulsing_icon_delayed_by_5_seconds.

To reach to the above results I applied the changes suggested at

Please let me know if I needed to add any more changes to get the
patch working because the sole application of this patch doesn't
produce the said changes at my end.

Also I would wish to ask for Gary's experience after he applied my
patch which I think he once referred to in the previous issue thread.
I worked on the pointers provided there by Gary and would love further

Fixing zoom efficiency should be looked at as a separate issue.
