> I agree Emil patch is simple, and the solution is easy.
> I agree with Gary that the solution is wrong, the collaboration stack

> I agree no one wants to invest time fixing the collaboration stack for

> Just want to ask, couldn't this be workarounded without requiring the

> network is connected, and if not performing a refresh.
> I just hope more of us drop tears each time we sacrifice Sugar simplicity :)
In case of going with Emil's patch,
- I think the button is better placed in the network palette
- The icon in the patch is module-updater.svg, which has a down arrow inside,
I think view-refresh.svg is better.
