I had no idea about that hidden checkbox, and without it enabled, the  
save dialogs are annoying as hell (in particular because they still  
lack a quit-without-saving button).

It's a bit cumbersome to make a new instance though. Maybe alt-click  
could do that for advanced users?

And it's unfortunate the activity icons change their position in the  
ring, the activities with journal entries seem to sort before the ones
