[Sugar-devel] [DESIGN] Stop start-up icon pulsing when an activity fails to start

I would like to propose that we stop pulsing the animated icons (in the main
screen area as well as the upper toolbar frame) when an activity fails to
start, and Sugar already knows to display a message stating this happened.

When this happens the animated icons should either be switched to the
highest transparency/alpha state to indicate failure, or be made

Otherwise, if a user is not actively watching the launcher screen, or the
activity started but Sugar failed to detect it, the pulsing icons will
continue to pulse using CPU cycles in the background until a users spots the
issue and presses the "Stop" button found on the failed launch screen.
