So, if I understand you correctly, 'start a new activity' should be the
default behavior, when you left click on the activity icon - and this
should be represented in the primary palette (top), too. Actually, there
is a gconf option (/schemas/desktop/sugar/desktop/favorites_mode) that
can be toggled to change the behavior, the layout of the palette is not
changed though. Would be a good test to try it out.
Any comment about the delay of the palette?
