Yes, there's no other good way. Flood-filling isn't going to play nice
with anti-aliasing. I guess the rendering stops after one full cycle,
thanks to the icon cache, but it still sucks.

Yeah, that would be awesome!

Do we have to solve the non-trivial problem of timing the dot correctly
with the activity startup? Hmmm... perhaps we could just make it do a
complete circle every second.

The bug Animator not being able to skip frames when rendering is too
slow should probably be fixed independently of this improvement to the
startup animation.
